There is no "proper"! tuning to se everything in a terminal monitor for many reasons.
I normally log as much as I can to a syslog server. but you need to be aware of the problems that if you try to log to a console it will only log 9600 wich in some systems will generate problems in the system since the logging will fill up if to much is logged to the console.
My general view is the more logging the better, you might not need it right now, but you might need it at some point later.
If you want proper timestamps you have to set up NTP.
The clock change on any switch or router will not effect to the connected devices. If the switch act as a NTP server in the other cisco devices (routers / switches) then the clock will be replicated to the clients.
Here is the link where you can see few of the loggin commands and descriptions of them.
Hope this helps you...

1)can y post me the commands for logging
2)I Didn't see any logging msg,i wanna see the below
Monitor logging: level debugging, 6 messages logged
Buffer logging: level debugging, 23798 messages logged
Exception Logging: size (4096 bytes)
Trap logging: level errors, 12836 message lines logged
See the below ones may help you...
Router(config)#logging console ?
<0-7> Logging severity level
alerts Immediate action needed (severity=1)
critical Critical conditions (severity=2)
debugging Debugging messages (severity=7)
emergencies System is unusable (severity=0)
errors Error conditions (severity=3)
filtered Enable filtered logging
guaranteed Guarantee console messages
informational Informational messages (severity=6)
notifications Normal but significant conditions (severity=5)
warnings Warning conditions (severity=4)
xml Enable logging in XML

Try the following.
switch(config)#service timestamps log datetime localtime
switch(config)#logging buffered 4096 informational
I would also set the the timezone (using Pacific as a reference.)
switch(config)#clock timezone PST -8
switch(config)#clock summer-time PDT recurring
If the switch is able to route to the Internet or a local time server set the NTP server.
I would like to state that the best you can do for yourself is to use syslog, if you run windows you can use fx kiwi syslog, and if you are using linux you can use the internal syslog server in the machine.
well if you start logging stuff and you have some traffic on it you will have alot of traffic clogging up your terminal and it makes working like that jsut about impossible.
so start using a syslog server, thats what I would have done.
The syslog will give you time to process the information and to go back and forth in the loggs to check things out.
