What is the date reported by prolog?

This question is not answered

OE 10.2B08 + Win2K12

When I run prolog online, this is the output:

The status of the log file for e:\base\toto.lg is:
234691623 Wed Dec 28 21:50:59 2016 e:\base\toto.lg
The status of the log file for e:\base\toto.lg is now:
2972 Wed Dec 28 21:50:59 2016 e:\base\toto.lg

Where did that "Wed Dec 28" date come from? It's not the date of the last prolog (every Sunday); it's not the DB start date/time (db was last started less than a month ago). It certainly is not the current date/time (and yes I checked).

Note that the same date/time is reported every time I run prolog.

The only thing *close* is the AI Begin date: Wed Dec 28 21:30:38 2016.

  • It's printing the file access time (st_atime)

    If you open your lg file Properties, this should match the "Accessed" date time on the General Tab

    Other than that, it doesn't have any impact on the prolog truncation that I can see.
