Does anyone know what an internet timestamp is? If so, how do I convert into something legible?

I am currently running a ping test using the following command in cmd:

ping -t server -s 1

This returns a ping result and the "timestamp". The timestamp is a ten digit number that makes no sense to me. It is as follows:


Does anyone know how to interpret this number?

internet timestamp is a forced option used for debugging purposes only and cannot be used for performance measurement, according to this article.

I'm not asking if I can use it for performance measurement. I'm asking if anyone knows how to interpret the timestamp number.

Does anyone know how?

The Timestamp is a right-justified, 32-bit timestamp in
milliseconds since midnight UT. If the time is not available in
milliseconds or cannot be provided with respect to midnight UT
then any time may be inserted as a timestamp provided the high
order bit of the timestamp field is set to one to indicate the
use of a non-standard value.
