Custom Report Start and End Times Inclusive or Exclusive

I am exporting a Custom Report to a CSV and want to make sure I don't miss any data.


Scenario 1: I want to include a full day's logs in one file For October 1, 2020. Would I set the start time to midnight and the end time to 11:59 PM, or would I put the end time to October 2, 2020, at midnight?

Scenario 2: I want all the data for the full 8 AM hour (starting at 8 AM and ending before 9 AM). Would I set the start time to 8 AM and the end time to 8:59 AM, or would I put the end time to 9 AM? Then, if I want the 9 AM hour, would I start it at 9 AM or 9:01 AM?


I hope this makes sense. I want to ensure I won't miss even one minute; basically, what I am asking is: are the start and end times inclusive or exclusive? Let me know if you need any clarification.

If you do not want to miss even 1 min of report then i would use below start and end time

Scenario 1>   Start Time midnight and end time Oct 2 12.00AM midnight

Scenario >2 Start time 8.00AM and end time 9.00AM.
