How Linux Check Time Zone

  • by

Linux Time Zone

We use command timedatectl to know current time zone in Linux.

[root@test ~]# timedatectl | grep "Time zone"
                Time zone: America/New_York (EDT, -0400)

The above result shows us 3 information about OS local time zone:

  • Time zone region: America/New_York
  • Time zone abbreviation: EDT
  • Time zone offset from UTC: -04:00

If current one is not correct, you can change time zone in Linux.
