Yes, that is Unix time.

Not for sure, but usually there are all kinds of Perl scripts to convert that to Human time.

For instance, I use a Perl script to convert the Unix time on my Squid logs.

Darrell's suggestion is better by far, since the timestamps *aren't* in Unix time format, but tai64n time format:

My logfile timestamp is in the following  format

@4000000045f615cb399da434

When I looked up  tai64n it seems to describe this correctly, but not the format in the first post in this thread...
