Dealing with time changes

I would be grateful to get some hints how to deal with this.
We are planning on a small SDK based program to transfer unit batch events from several PI servers in different time zones to a SQL server table. We would choose to use UTC time to prevent us from running into DST issues and to have a continous time line.

 

Also, we would consider to use the UTCSeconds property of the PIUnitBatch/PISubBatch time objects.

 

What would be best practice with SDK to ensure consistent time stamps over time changes (standard to DST and back)?

 

 

 

Thanks!
