.partial files are at the end of a timeline, so they will be ignored now (and this even if a node on the old timeline archives the same segment as the .partial one sent by the promoted standby). And as pg_xlogdump is not able to follow a timeline jump there is nothing we would need to do: $ pg_xlogdump 000000010000000000000006 000000020000000000000008 pg_xlogdump: FATAL: could not find file "000000020000000000000006": No such file or directory $ pg_xlogdump -t 1 000000010000000000000006 000000020000000000000008 pg_xlogdump: FATAL: could not find file "000000020000000000000006": No such file or directory I am not convinced that it is worth to make pg_xlogdump follow timeline jumps as well.. One could just run it twice on the old and new timeline segments to get the output he wants. -- Michael -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
