Google sitemaps - my experiences

I recently decided to get a bit more aggressive about getting indexed so I made a huge sitemap for it, then
discovered that Googs won't go over 50,000 urls in one map. So, I
broke it down into 4 smaller ones, and I finally got them indexed
yesterday. Now my tally of indexed pages has gone down from 10,400 to
1,740. Hopefully this means that it's being gradually re-indexed
overall. Be helpful if we could be sure that the site operator was
actually working again.
I made an index of the sitemaps but couldn't work out from the
documentation what it should be called; anyone know? My money would be
on sitmapindex.xml but I can't be certain.
