Absolute time format is a time format that is used for specifying a specific date or time of day. The following date/time formats qualify as absolute:

  • dd-mmm-yyyy
  • hh:mm:ss.cc
  • dd-mmm-yyyy:hh:mm:ss.cc
  • "dd-mmm-yyyy hh:mm:ss.cc"
  • BOOT

You can omit any of the trailing fields in the date or time. You can omit any of the fields in the middle of the format as long as you specify the punctuation marks, for example, "-mmm-yyyy hh".

Absolute time is used by most command qualifiers that require a time value.
