(In a test setup) I can't get pg_archivecleanup to remove WALfiles in 9.3devel. (A very similar setup in 9.2 works fine).
In 9.3 pg_archivecleanup just keeps repeating lines like: pg_archivecleanup: keep WAL file "/home/aardvark/pg_stuff/archive_dir93/000000000000000000000000" and later (and does not delete any files.) Configuration: # master pgsql.93_1/data/postgresql.conf: data_directory = '/home/aardvark/pg_stuff/pg_installations/pgsql.93_1/data' listen_addresses = '*' max_connections = 100 shared_buffers = 128MB wal_level = hot_standby synchronous_commit = on checkpoint_segments = 3 archive_mode = on archive_command = 'cp %p /home/aardvark/pg_stuff/archive_dir93/%f < /dev/null' max_wal_senders = 3 synchronous_standby_names = '*' # slave pgsql.93_2/data/postgresql.conf: data_directory = '/home/aardvark/pg_stuff/pg_installations/pgsql.93_2/data' listen_addresses = '*' port = 6665 max_connections = 100 shared_buffers = 128MB wal_level = hot_standby synchronous_commit = on checkpoint_segments = 3 max_wal_senders = 3 synchronous_standby_names = '' hot_standby = on wal_receiver_status_interval = 59 # pgsql.93_2/data/recovery.conf primary_conninfo = 'host=127.0.0.1 port=6664 user=aardvark password=sekr1t application_name=wal_receiver_01' standby_mode = 'on' restore_command = 'cp /home/aardvark/pg_stuff/archive_dir93/%f %p < /dev/null' archive_cleanup_command = 'pg_archivecleanup -d /home/aardvark/pg_stuff/archive_dir93 %r' Seeing that the same setup in 9.2 has pg_archivecleanup deleting files, it would seem that some bug exists but I haven't followed changes regarding WAL too closely. (My apologies if it's a config mistake on my part after all; but in that case: I cannot find it and would be thankful for a hint) Thanks, Erik Rijkers -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
