Kinda awkward sweep to me. Usually you're not going up with your fingers from left to right like that, but nothing wrong with going against the grain, I guess.

That looks a lot like the exercise Joe Satriani recommends in a lot of his videos I've seen. He doesn't really sweep though but I'm talking about the fingering, if you look at the first 4 notes and the second 4 notes and treat those as two chords, switching back and forth between those cleanly is a great way to improve your fret hand finger strength and dexterity, once you get good at it start switching the fingering up a bit. I used to use a pattern like that to practice my right hand picking.

its a great exercise and is featured on john petruccis rock discipline dvd (an awesome all rounder...check my DP im a fan...lol), i can assure you, if you practice sweeping on 3 then 5/6 strings the only way youll be able to sweep is like malmsteen and becker...that sound is limited and cliche, i advise you to carry on with this then experiment with other 4 note arpeggios, but most importantly how to be different with them (for example an Fmaj7 arpeggio over a dmin to bing out a minor 9 tonality)

sweeping is useful to break out of 3 nps cliches, it opens up intervalic playing, as 4th and 5ths are right under the basic shapes

i started with 3 string sweeps and 5-6 string sweeps were very easy to come after once i got 3 string sweeps down.

try practicing this:
e:-------10h14p10-------|-
B:----12----------12----|-
G:-11----------------11-|-
D:----------------------|-
A:----------------------|-
E:----------------------|-

just bring up the 10 to 11 to practice your major sweep
