Hello guys,

what does this mean : "System time went forwards by 31.74..." from splunkforwarder (Windows v7.1.4)?

Thanks for your help.

As others have mentioned, it means the host's OS time updated and moved forward by 31.74 seconds. The time may drifted and was corrected by the NTP server. It's nothing to be concerned with.

It sounds like splunk is adjusting its timestamp based on the time stamp of your data

I believe it means, that the time within the Client Operating System changed time (or adjusted with NTP)
