The journal includes some transaction markers (lines beginning with "@ex@") which help to identify the end of a transaction. The format of this marker is the following:
@ex@ pid date
The date is in Unix epoch format (the number of seconds since January 1, 1970 at midnight GMT).
With the above information you can now identify the Perforce command in the Perforce server log file by searching for the date first and narrow down your search using the pid.Note
: When converting the date to a human readable date
, you need to take into account the server timezone (check Server date of the p4 info
command) because all the dates in the Perforce server log are the server timezone date (not UTC).
