Last updated on JUNE 24, 2020

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.0 and later
Linux x86-64


In /var/log/messages, log time is slipped temporally during initramfs, from OS boot to mounting root filesystem.

For example, following shows that time stamp is +9 hours from OS boot, and fixed to the actual time after mounting root filesystem.
