AF Table Timezones and DST

Hi All,

Trying to find a solution to determine the local time in a different location than my AFserver.

 

For that i wanted to use a (time-series) lookup table to lookup what the UTC offset is for a timezone at ant given time. However, these rules are of course defined in local time, and i need to lookup the UTC offset to find the local time (catch-21...).

E.g. for a server running in the UK (thus at UTC) i need to determine the current time in NL (CET, +1h) based on the timezone rules (this today CEST, +2h).

 

So i started looking into the Timezone setting on AFtables, but i could not find if that includes support for DST or not? And if yes, do i then need to configure the regular (non-DST) timezone?
