As far as I understand, XLOG is a logical big file of 256 * 16 MB,
and this is split to multiple physical files of 16MB which are called
WAL segments. The second 8 characters indicate the id of the logical
xlog file, and the last 8 characters indicate the sequencial number of
the segment in this xlog.
