Issue:
Data on dashboards goes past the current time and into the future
Environment:
Any CAPM version
Resolution:
In this instance the java processes on the data aggregator never got the updated time from when chrony fixed it. 
We knew this by checking the /opt/IMDataAggregator/data/performance-spool directory.  This is the incoming polled data. 
The files had a current time but looking at the ifstats_rate file it had time stamps that were in the future

Cycling the data collector resolved the issue:
  • service dcmd stop
  • service dcmd start
Additional Information:
Notes
  • Polled data is collected based on the data collector time stamps
  • CAPC displays the data based on the user's timezone setting
