That was going to be my question too.
I thought NFS didn't have some of the requisite file system behaviors
(locking, flushing, etc. IIRC) for PostgreSQL to function correctly or
Whether the thing is trustworthy is a different issue ;-).  I was just
surprised that it didn't seem to work at all.

In practice, if the NFS server never goes down then you probably haven't
got a problem.  I'm not sure you could count on the database not getting
scrambled if the NFS server crashes.  But that wasn't the question...
FWIW I use a netapp filer for my databases here for traffic analysis and IP management.

The NETAPP has battery backed NVRAM and will replay the right stuff on it's own.

Just another datapoint.
