[Orca-users] Using orca on HP - Timestamps question

I have installed and configured orca to run on an HP-UX 11.x system. I am
pulling data from HP Measureware (their PerfView license is through the
roof!) and feeding it into the RRD successfully and am getting accurate
charts out.

My question is regarding the time displayed on the X axis. I understand that
RDDTool stores the data in GMT. Shouldn't the charts be produced with the
x-axis reflecting the local time zone? In my case, the x-axis is displaying
in GMT rather than CST - all despite $TZ being set correctly - which is
somewhat confusing to those viewing the chart. Is this expected behavior, or
am I overlooking something?

Thanks for any input!
