Hello Tom, Apologies for delayed reply.
Our setup is a hot-standby architecture. This crash is occurring only on stand-by node. Postgres continues to run without any issues on active node. Postmaster is waiting for a start and is throwing this message. Aug 22 11:44:21.462555 info node-0 postgres: [1-2] HINT: Is another postmaster already running on port 5433? If not, wait a few seconds and retry. Aug 22 11:44:52.065760 crit node-1 postgres: [18-1] err-3: btree_xlog_delete_get_latestRemovedXid: cannot operate with inconsistent dataAug 22 11:44:52.065971 crit CFPU-1 postgres: [18-2] CONTEXT: xlog redo delete: index 1663/16386/17378; iblk 1, heap 1663/16386/16518; Aug 22 11:44:52.085486 info node-1 coredumper: Generating core file The standby postgres recovers automatically on next restart. This is because we always copy db freshly from active node on restart. We implemented one patch to force kill walsender on active side. This is done to avoid prolonged wait if standby node is not reachable (for eg. Force power off or LAN cable removal). This implementation exists from long time. However the issue only recently observed after upgrading to 9.3.11. Do you think this force kill of walsender might lead to such issues in latest postgres?

Does it successfully restart if you try again? If not, what are you doing to recover? regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
