What is the Timestamp format in BT Export?

Hello,

the AppMon BT export definition has timestamps for the startTime and endTime of PPs/Visits.

message BtOccurrence {
required int64 startTime = 1; //java time stamp; start time of purepath/visit
optional int64 endTime = 2; //java time stamp; end time of visit

What precision is this timestamp and how is it represented? UNIX_MS, TAI64N?

Reason for asking is that if this is only in a ms precision, using the export to feed a high resolution time series database might lead to loosing data due to identical timestamps. AppMon for sure has nanosecond timestamps, but are these represented in the export?

Thanks!

hi Reinhard,

it's milliseconds since 1970 UTC (System.currentTimeMillis()).

HTH,
