In the session log for a download I'm in progress on, there are multiple entries like:

<timestamp> REST 1234567
<timestamp> 350 Restarting at 1234567. Send STORE or RETRIEVE

Each entry is a higher number than the entry before it. Is the number a byte-position in the file, or something like that, or is it more of a timestamp?

In other words, does the increasing number mean progress is being made on downloading the file, or does it just mean that "this entry is later than the prior entry"?

I can't tell if it's silently failed (no progress being made, but it's still trying) or if it's just getting interrupted a lot, but will eventually (probably) succeed.

It's position. It should be happening only if you are losing connection all the time (what should be visible in the log too).
