Current Utc Time With Seconds

Posted on  by admin

Syntax automatically displays the time in your time zone by using your IP address to detect your location. Your IP address is Your detected location is New York, United States. Utctime, utctime Returns the current UTC time as a value in 'HH:MM:SS' or HHMMSS format, depending on whether the function is used in a string or numeric context. One can add or subtract a number of seconds from a date-time object, but not add two date-time objects. Subtraction of two date-time objects is equivalent to using difftime. Be aware that 'POSIXlt' objects will be interpreted as being in the current time zone for these operations unless a time zone has been specified.

Current utc time code


Unlike GMT which is based on solar time and originally calculated a second as a fraction of the time it takes for the Earth to make a full rotation around its axis, UTC calculates a second as “the duration of periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium 133 atom”. UTC’s second is far more precise than GMT's original second. In 1972 leap seconds were introduced to synchronize UTC time with solar time. These 2 turning points (different definition of a second and the introduction of leap seconds) ‘forced’ GMT to be the same as UTC based on what seemed a gradual, tacit convention.

Returns the current UTC date and time as a value in 'YYYY-MM-DDHH:MM:SS' or YYYYMMDDHHMMSS.uuuuuu format, depending on whether thefunction is used in a string or numeric context.

The optional precision determines the microsecond precision. See Microseconds in MariaDB.

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.


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.

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
