crazy old date of .txt files in /results

crazy old date of .txt files in /results
what's with the 11/1979 date of the text files in /results?

that is causing immense headaches when trying to do some internal archiving and windowing of those files - in an effort to intelligently export them into an area that can be consumed by other processes.

can you simply timestamp them with the time they are actually created?

thanks.

I've never seen a timestamp issue like that. Are the clocks on both your server and the test agents reasonably close to current?

Yes - i just checked the server and 3 machines that are running agents. All in EC2, and all set to Greenwich Time (3 Windows machines) and UTC (linux).

All have current time and within 1 second of each other.

Thanks.

I can tweak the server to touch the files as it receives them instead of just moving them from the upload folder. The created time won't change but the last-modified should show up as current.

That would be helpful - right now i run a cron job that touches files with modify dates > 20 years or something like that.

interestingly, looking into the details of generic file time info in linux, it seems there are only 2 times available for a file - when the contents were last modified and when the status was last modified - but not the create date. i'm no expert, but that's what i recall when trying to figure out what was going on here.

thanks again!
