You can use pg_xlogdump to inspect those logs and see which
relations/transactions are generating so much WAL.
Then you can hunt within your apps which code is responsible for that
traffic, or whether it in fact is autovacuum.
Is pg_xlogdump available for postgres 9.1, as my current production is
Yes investigated in that area, found DML's and also autovacuum statements
for some relations. And the DML's are the same before this huge WAL traffic
and normal WAL traffic.
Anyways, thanks for your timely response 😊
