Date Thu, 11 Jan 2018 13:25:50 GMT
Files are source files e.g. FileTxnLog.java that is related to Write Ahead Log and snapshot
mechanism. And thanks for the explanation!

> I'm not 100% sure what you mean by "what files can be checked". I think you are looking
for where the write ahead log and snapshot are stored. This directory (optionally directories)
are specified in the configuration file.

store the in-memory database snapshots and, unless specified otherwise, the transaction log
of updates to the database".
> The "unless specified otherwise" refers to the optional configuration dataLogDir. The
dataDir always contains the snapshots in "snapshot.X" files and if dataLogDir is not specified
log files in "log.X" (X is a value that ZooKeeper uses for keeping track of transactions).
If dataLogDir is specified, dataDir will only contain snapshots and dataLogDir will have the
log files.
> Small note, on ZooKeeper 3.4.11 there is a bug regarding dataLogDir not functioning properly
(see: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-2960). This does not exist prior to
3.4.11 and should be fixed in the next release.
