Identity export produces output of input transactions as they are interpreted by Tackler.
This export is valid input for Tackler, so it can be used for example archiving purposes.
By Tackler’s design constraints input order of transactions is not important, and it does not mandate transactions processing order.
Transactions are sorted by using transaction’s properties in following order to find correct sort order.
timestamp, code, description, uuid
Tackler supports timestamps up to nanosecond resolution, so timestamp could be used to produce stable natural sorting order if transaction producers have syncronized time available and nanosecond resolution is sufficient.
If all available transactions properties used for ordering are same between several transaction, then transaction ordering is undefined.
|Transactions must have UUIDs, if fully deterministic, stable and "distributed transaction producers"-safe transaction ordering is needed.|
