Patrick Hunt commented on ZOOKEEPER-616:

Actually this is very well documented in the current release docs:
"When creating a znode you can also request that ZooKeeper append a monotonicly 
increasing counter to the end of path. This counter is unique to the parent 
znode. The counter has a format of %010d -- that is 10 digits with 0 (zero) 
padding (the counter is formatted in this way to simplify sorting), i.e. 

However this does sound like a reasonable request to me. Where should we put it 
though? Stick it into ZooKeeper class, or in 
some new ZooKeeperUtils class? (both don't seem optimal) As we don't have a 
"ZNode" class on the client (Stat is probably
the closest) there's no obvious place to put it afaict.

>             Project: Zookeeper
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: c client, java client
>    Affects Versions: 3.0.0, 3.0.1, 3.1.0, 3.1.1, 3.2.0, 3.2.1
>            Reporter: Avery Ching
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 3.3.0
> Given a zookeeper path and knowing it was created with the SEQUENCE flag, it 
> would be nice to be able to get the sequence number and the name.  Currently, 
> it is not documented how many bytes the sequence number uses in the path 
> (Mahadev told me 10 for 3.1.1 for example), and having a function to retrieve 
> this data would hide the actual number of bytes used and provide the useful 
> functionality for users.
