I’m seeking advice on the possibility of adjusting the time zone settings for Kubernetes’ core components from UTC to a particular time zone. The goal of this modification is to ensure that the timestamps on pod logs reflect the specified time zone. This would streamline the process of gathering these logs with Filebeat and then displaying them effectively in Kibana.
Would it be advisable to alter the time zone for pods, especially for critical components such as the controller-manager, scheduler, proxy, and plugins like Calico and Ingress-nginx, among others? Could anyone share the best practices for achieving this?
