Hunk UTC timezone

SplunkTrust

We use UTC as our timezone for Hunk + HIve. So we use this in our indexes.conf

vix.input.1.et.timezone = UTC

I have read http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/util/TimeZone.html but am not clear if "UTC" is legitimate.
If not, what should I use?

UTC = GMT

So I should be putting GMT not UTC?

It's Java util simple time zone...

I googled Java time zone IDs and found that GMT should be fine but if that doesn't work try GMT + 0:00

If that doesn't work try "universal" instead as UTC and universal are supposed to work just as well
