OK, combining your and Robert's ideas, how about I have pg_upgrade write the server log to a file, and the pg_dump output to a file (with its stderr), and if pg_upgrade fails, I report the failure and mention those files. If pg_upgrade succeeds, I remove the files? pg_upgrade already creates temporary files that it removes on completion. -- Bruce Momjian <br...@momjian.us> http://momjian.us EnterpriseDB http://enterprisedb.com + It's impossible for everything to be true. + -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
