After the API Gateway is upgraded from any version to 9.4, the syslog headers and logs include the millisecond timestamp. The default time format in 9.4 is:
MMM d hh:mm:ss.SSS

The extra milliseconds format "SSS" causes issues in parsing with some monitoring tools.


API Gateway: 9.4, 9.4 CR1


This was introduced as an enhancement for customers that require the millisecond timestamp in their logs.


Configurable timestamp was introduced in 9.4 CR2 with a new audit-related cluster property - syslog.dateFormat. It allows format modification of the syslog date-time format.

To resolve this issue, upgrade to 9.4 CR2 first and then use this property per your needs.
