Deciphering DMT 9.01 log time stamp

Has anyone ever figured out how to properly decipher the time stamp when logging to file with DMT 9.01?

It seems to log the stats from my SS6520 no problem, it just the time makes no sense, and it's practically useless for figuring out when something went bad. It also behaves the same way on a SS4200.

The timestamp is the first part. I have DMT log every 15 seconds, and the entries do increase in 15 second intervals.

Any clues?

It's POSIX (Unix time).
The time is the number of seconds since 00:00 January 1, 1970.

LOL... Is there an easy way to convert it to the current time?

Found one...

Without the use of software you are stuck doing it by hand on paper or in your head though the guys in the Unix forum might have some sort of cheat or trick to use. The link below has several coding solutions in popular languages.

Question is, why on earth would someone write a utility that logs time in this manner... Especially for Windows. I would write the author but the software hasnt been updated in years so it's quite pointless.

It was probably written in POSIX, which was quite popular a number of years ago. It was a tinker-toy system that the university folks used to teach, what I considered, the wrong way to design/write code. This is just another example of what happens when you dive under the covers of much of the communication stuff that was designed by somebody working on a PhD in CompSci. Utter nonsense.
