Use the showtimezone command to display the current time zone settings for the cluster.


showtimezone [ -nohdr ] [ -delimdelimiter ]


(Optional) By default, headings are displayed for each column of data in a concise style view, and for each item of data in a detailed style view. The -nohdr parameter suppresses the display of these headings.
Note: If there is no data to be displayed, headings are not displayed.
(Optional) By default in a concise view, all columns of data are space-separated. The width of each column is set to the maximum possible width of each item of data. In a detailed view, each item of data has its own row, and if the headers are displayed, the data is separated from the header by a space. The -delim parameter overrides this behavior. Valid input for the -delim parameter is a one-byte character. If you enter -delim : on the command line, the colon character (:) separates all items of data in a concise view; for example, the spacing of columns does not occur. In a detailed view, the data is separated from its header by the specified character.


This command displays a single time zone and its associated ID. This is the current time zone setting for the cluster. A list of available time-zones can be viewed by running the lstimezones command. The time zone can be changed by running the settimezone command.
