Ah, yes, I've actually had that on my TODO for some time. I think the easy way of doing that is to just create an xlog.tar file. Since we already create "base.tar" and possibly n*<tablespace.tar>, adding one more file shouldn't be a big problem, and would make such an implementation much easier. Would be trivial to do .tar.gz for it as well, just like for the others. -- Magnus Hagander Me: http://www.hagander.net/ Work: http://www.redpill-linpro.com/ -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
