Log explanation

I have a Proxy Server (Ezproxy) running on a Fedora 8 Linux mahcine and I need to create a logformat config statement in Analog (A Webstat analyzer).

One of the ezproxy logs looks like this:
proxy - gNDs4AexHJMk3B9 [15/Jul/2008:21:04:33 -0600] "GET HTTP/1.1" 200 0
What confuses me is the timstamp that I have highlighted in bold red "-0600". I've looked all through the docs to syslog and ezproxy, but they don't explain this number. Does it have anything to do with permissions on the log file?

I don't know ezProxy at all but I guess it could be a time-zone
offset. How many hours are you away from UTC? Somewhere on
the US east-coast, or close enough to it?

And it wouldn't make any sense to write the perms into a
logfile ;}

a time-zone
That was my first thought. It looks like a time in UTC, plus an offset from UTC (or GMT?) for your local time.

It would be a very odd permission (in octal) so I can't believe it would be that.
