system.time() function returns the current system time.
import "system" system.time()
import "system" data |> set(key: "processed_at", value: string(v: system.time() ))
system.time() vs now()
system.time() returns the system time (UTC) at which
system.time() is executed.
Each instance of
system.time() in a Flux script returns a unique value.
now() returns the current system time (UTC).
now() is cached at runtime, so all instances of
now() in a Flux script
return the same value.
