How to add dates to pm2 error logs?

Is there a way to add timestamps to error logs in .pm2/logs?

I noticed that

pm2 logs
command shows aggregated logs with timestamps, but looking into log files - there are only messages and stacktraces without dates.

As per this issue & this commit, you can use:

pm2 start app.js --log-date-format 'DD-MM HH:mm:ss.SSS'

where 'DD-MM HH:mm:ss.SSS' is any momentjs valid format.
