what is check-in time in VSS( Microsoft Visual Source Safe)?

Is it the timestamp on the file from the client side?
Is it the actual check-in time on the client side?
Is it the actual check-in time on the server side(assuming client and server are 2 different machines)?

you can choose in vss what time to be used.

the options are 'current', 'modification', or 'check-in'.

'current' means that any file checked-out that was different to the local copy will get the current local timestamp. that would assure that it was considered for a new build.

'modification' means that it would get the timestamp of the last modification (wherever it comes from). that is tricky if the computers are out-of-sync or developers work at different time-zones.

'check-in' means server time of check-in. though it was in sync it normally would require a full build after check-out as the check-in times may be arbitrary.
