Later swapfiles have earlier dates?
Authored by: macmath on Dec 16, '03 03:26:24PM

What I find most interesting about the swapfiles in the above post is that later swapfiles have earlier dates. Why is swapfile3 dated before any of the others (unless SOX had successfully deleted swapfile0, swapfile1, swapfile 2 ealier AND the swapfiles which were created thereafter started with swapfile0 again) and why swapfile2 is dated before swapfile0 and swapfile1 (unless that above happened and SOX had successfully deleted the new swapfile0 and swapfile1 again).

SOX, if indeed you did delete these swapfiles without reprocussions, and if the next swapfile created after swapfile0-2 were deleted was called swapfile0, what was the size of the new swapfile0? 64 MB like the original swapfile0 or 512 MB like the swapfile4 would have been had the earlier swapfiles not been deleted.

Doh! I guess I can tell from your post that the new swapfile0 and swapfile1 were both 64 MB again! ...but, did you delete successfully those original swapfiles and get them replaced by a new swapfile0 and swapfile1, etc. or what is the explanation of the dates being out of order?

I'm not sure how you perceive that the swapfiles listed in SOX's post are in reverse chronological order:
10 Dec 18:17 swapfile0
10 Dec 19:43 swapfile1
13 Dec 16:36 swapfile2
14 Dec 14:37 swapfile3

Swapfile0, created first, is shown as being created earlier (10 Dec) than the other swapfiles (with swapfile1 created later the same day), and so on through swapfile3. Last time I looked, Dec 13 and Dec 14 came after Dec 10.
