    Description

      First consider the following simple example calls to a WT instance with the same key:

      • Write + Commit U1 at TS(20)
      • Prepare U2 at TS(10)
      • Commit U2 at any commit + durable timestamp (the exact values irrelevant)

      When using the (patched, see WT-7815) ordered write timestamp assertion, WT will correctly call out this misuse when the transaction commits entirely because of the chosen prepare timestamp.

      Now consider the same example, but with a restart:

      • Set OldestTimestamp 1
      • Write + Commit U1 at TS(20)
      • Set StableTimestamp 20
      • Take a stable checkpoint and restart WT
      • Prepare U2 at TS(10)
      • Commit U2 at any commit + durable timestamp

      In the second example, the assertion does not fire, but this out of order usage is still problematic and must be avoided from unintentionally happening.
