[Oisf-users] Suricata time&zone settings

I am testing Suricata IDS in a VirtualBox machine with Lubuntu installed.

For example, Suricata is returning the alert:

03/28/2019-06:27:08.325470  [**] [1:2100368:7] GPL ICMP_INFO PING BSDtype [**] [Classification: Misc activity] [Priority: 3] {ICMP} ->

However the timestamp is wrong. The correct timestamp is 03/28/2019-10:27:08.325470. I'm expecting the alert time to match the system time of the server

Às 01:24 de 28/03/19, Jason Taylor escreveu:
Can you give us some examples of alert output and then what you expect the time to be?

Are you expecting the alert time to match the system time of the server running suricata?

What type/manufacturer is the network card suricata is using?  Is the network card using hardware or software time-stamping?

I'm struggling to adjust time in Suricata IDS. The suricata alerts are
including a wrong timestamp.

How can configure the time zone in Suricata?

Thanks in advance.
