      Sulabh, as far as I can tell, the documentation doesn't discuss these kinds of exceptions and/or errors (for example, WT_CONNECTION.set_timestamp currently says "Supplied values must be monotonically increasing").
       
      Would it be possible for you to review/fix the docs based on your work?
      

      And Sulabh agree to review the documentation. I have found other inconsistencies in timestamp documentation that should be addressed at the same time.
