  2. Utc Time Right Now

The UTC timestamp on the jsfiddle link is incorrect. Actually your 'Local timestamp' is the UTC timestamp and your 'UTC timestamp' is the # of seconds between epoch UTC and your local time, which isn't really meaningful. Date.getTime automatically returns a UTC.

Current local time in UTC. See a clock with the accurate time and find out where it is observed. CURRENTTIMESTAMP derives this value from the operating system of the computer on which the instance of SQL Server runs. Note SYSDATETIME and SYSUTCDATE have more precision, as measured by fractional seconds precision, than GETDATE and GETUTCDATE.

Applies to: SQL Server (all supported versions) Azure SQL Database Azure SQL Managed Instance Azure Synapse Analytics Parallel Data Warehouse

This function returns the current database system timestamp as a datetime value, without the database time zone offset. CURRENT_TIMESTAMP derives this value from the operating system of the computer on which the instance of SQL Server runs.

Note

SYSDATETIME and SYSUTCDATE have more precision, as measured by fractional seconds precision, than GETDATE and GETUTCDATE. The SYSDATETIMEOFFSET function includes the system time zone offset. You can assign SYSDATETIME, SYSUTCDATETIME, and SYSDATETIMEOFFSET to a variable of any of the date and time types.

This function is the ANSI SQL equivalent to GETDATE.

See Date and Time Data Types and Functions for an overview of all the Transact-SQL date and time data types and functions.

Current Utc Now

Arguments

This function takes no arguments.

Return Type

datetime

Remarks

Transact-SQL statements can refer to CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, anywhere they can refer to a datetime expression.

CURRENT_TIMESTAMP is a nondeterministic function. Views and expressions that reference this column cannot be indexed.

Examples

These examples use the six SQL Server system functions that return current date and time values, to return the date, the time, or both. The examples return the values in series, so their fractional seconds might differ. Note that the actual values returned will reflect the actual day / time of execution.

A. Get the Current System Date and Time

B. Get the Current System Date

C. Get the Current System Time

Examples: Azure Synapse Analytics and Parallel Data Warehouse
