Traditionally yes, but things are changing in this area, if you consider the top-level file system of a modern Linux distribution. One reason is that "run" is/can be blown away at reboot. This wouldn't be an entirely useless feature for postgres: Can you tell otherwise which of the various pid/lock/opts files you can delete if you have killed the processes and want to eliminate any left-over state? Is postmaster.opts a configuration file or a state file? -- Peter Eisentraut http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
