Tlog extractor timestamp vs mavlink_system_time_t.time_unix_usec


when using the tlog extractor program to extract mission data from Mission Planner the default date and time columns extracted by tlog extractor program are 4 seconds behind the mavlink_system_time_t.time_unix_usec.

why is there a discrepancy in the time?

where does the default time and date data from the tlog extractor come from? what is the source? GPStime? Universal Coordinate time? Time from the internet (which is usually Universal Coordinated time).

thanks in advance.

it is your local pc time. not anything derived from the stream. you could however drive something yourself from the stream. technically you could use it to determine latency etc.
