Wrong Default Date in Data Point Details
I changed the processor time to correspond to the installed site (CDT) but I'm viewing the data in a different time zone (EDT). When I select the point for viewing, using Previous Hr, the error message "No data for range" comes up. That is, the Previous Hr setting, by default, assumes EDT - and no graph appears. Is there a way to change the default time to correspond to the installed site time? (Otherwise users - non technical - tend to think the system is not working properly.)

Can you clarify? My test was,
- server in EST, me in MST.
- On that page, data points are updating, showing the current time in MST
- On the chart, Previous 1 hr displays time in MST, and included the latest data
I tried changing the timezone via 'dpkg-reconfigure tzdata' while watching a data point / refreshing the page and nothing seemed to change, as I would expect (since almost everything is done by us in epoch milliseconds which don't care where you are).
Are you sure you aren't missing data?
I'm pretty sure I'm not missing data. I used dpkg-reconfigure tzdata to double check my remote site timezone. Here's the result:
Current default time zone: 'America/Chicago'
Local time is now: Thu May 12 12:11:13 CDT 2016.
Universal Time is now: Thu May 12 17:11:13 UTC 2016.
But this isn't right. The local time should be 1:11:xx.
I rebooted Mango and the time zone (now) shows correctly on the System Information page.
A check of the data point details shows the correct remote time but the default Previous Hour shows my local time. It needs to show the remote time. Suggestions?
