JVM config UTC Issues

Just wanted to pass along the following to users… with searchable keywords like UTC timezone and druid jvm

I wanted to set my time zone in the druid overlord UI and have a default for incoming data so I modified the settings on the JVM (see the cut and paste below) for my zone.

After restarting druid I found I had some issues where by indexing tasks would get indefinitely paused.

I undid my changes, restart Druid, and that all went away.

I’m using druid 0.12.1.

Hey Nick,

Thanks for the notes. Druid is definitely intended to use UTC as a default, but, you can specify other timezones in queries.
