Add time zone information to Connect Direct logs. Log file should present the datetime/timestamp in unambiguous fashion.

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and we believe the functionality you've requested may already exist in the stats. Some time back we added a parameter called TZDI which shows the difference between the local time of the C:D server and UTC. Could you please take a look to see if this would meet your needs?
