5.2.7.2 Setting the Timezone and Locale

If this is the first time that you have launched the dashboard, you are asked to set your time zone and locale. Choose the appropriate values from the drop-down list boxes. Setting the time zone ensures that you have an accurate time reference for any notifications from the MySQL Enterprise Advisors.

Warning

Make sure to set the time zone (and the system clock) correctly because this setting affects the way the graphs display. To change the time zone or locale, see Section 2.8.2, “User Preferences”.

The locale chosen determines the default language displayed when logging in to the Dashboard. This overrides the default browser settings whenever this specific user logs in.

After specifying your time zone and locale, the dashboard opens on the Monitor tab. For a detailed examination of the Monitor Screen, see Section 2.1, “MySQL Enterprise Dashboard”.
