Why is data from PI System pulled on machine timezone

Kaio Souza

Recommended Posts

I'm having a huge problem. My PI System is in MST timezone and my machine is in CST timezone. I need to pull data in MST but there's no functionality to set the timezone. Spotfire pull on machine timezone (CST) automatically.

My solution now is to calculate a new column applying the time offset based on the timezone, but this means that I have to check every part of my file that uses the original timestamp column and change to the new... I really don't want to do that. Does someone have an easy solution for this

Hi Kaio

How are you pulling the data into Spotfire.

In our Custom Data Source for reading PI data their is a timezone option to specify Local or UTC time as there is no way to find out what timezone the PI Server is in at runtime.

I suspect you are running into the same issue.

If you are planning to run the final DXP on a Web Player server, note that the results will display in the timezone of the Server running the Web Player service.
