Timezones and daylight saving

The AxoSyslog application receives the timezone and daylight saving information from the operating system it is installed on. If the operating system handles daylight saving correctly, so does syslog-ng.

The AxoSyslog application supports messages originating from different timezones. The original syslog protocol (RFC3164) does not include timezone information, but syslog-ng provides a solution by extending the syslog protocol to include the timezone in the log messages. The AxoSyslog application also enables administrators to supply timezone information for legacy devices which do not support the protocol extension.
