Gallery, Scheduler, and Timezones

I had a coworker ask me what time zone the scheduler ran in; so I (@ Server location, US Central Standard) poked at it a little bit with another coworker (US Eastern). I had her schedule a job a couple minutes into the future to see if it ran on her time or mine. We learned a handful of helpful things:

 

  1. The scheduler runs on server time; US CST in this case.
  2. The verifier that says whether or not you are trying to schedule a job to start in the past runs on computer local time
  3. Job results display in computer local time.

I've posted some pictures below that show her results screen and the schedule listing from the Admin side of the Gallery, respectively, to show the discrepancy.
