If time stamps are not consistently applied and there is no common time reference, it is difficult to perform forensic analysis.

Time stamps generated by the application include date and time. Time is commonly expressed in UTC, a modern continuation of GMT, or local time with an offset from UTC.


Configure the Cisco router to record time stamps for audit records that can be mapped to UTC or GMT as shown in the example below.

RP/0/0/CPU0:R3(config)#clock timezone EST -5
RP/0/0/CPU0:R3(config)#service timestamps log datetime localtime
