Subject Re: [firebird-support] Re: Number of the Next Transaction

Thank you very much for your answer Dmitry. However my first question remains: why after a cycle backup/restore the Next Transaction was 304 and not 3?

My understanding so far is that after a cycle backup/restore the ID of all transactions in the backup is put in 1. So, the Next Transaction would be 3 or a number very close to 3.

Why it was 304?

Without connections to the database, OAT/OIT/OST means virtually
nothing. They may be outdated as nothing depend on them. Only the Next
Transaction counter is always actual. However, when a new transaction is
started, OAT/OIT/OST are recalculated and updated on the header page,
hence they start to match the Next Transaction counter.

This explanation is a bit simplified but you should get the idea.
