If a per database configurable tslog_priority is given, the timestamp will be truncated to milliseconds and the increment logic is done on milliseconds. The priority is added to the timestamp. This guarantees that no two timestamps for commits will ever be exactly identical, even across different servers.

Wouldn't it be better to just store that information separately, rather than mucking with the timestamp?

Though, there's anothe issue here... I don't think NTP is good for any better than a few milliseconds, even on a local network.

How exact does the conflict resolution need to be, anyway? Would it really be a problem if transaction B committed 0.1 seconds after transaction A yet the cluster thought it was the other way around?
