Thanks for the suggestion. The problem isn't backup media ... we have a DLT
drive ... the problem is time. This particular application is already about
4 weeks behind schedule because of various hardware problems. At some point,
Kevin Brown and I will take a weekend to swap the postgres files to a spare
disk, and re-format the data array as pass-through Linux RAID.
And this is the last time I leave it up to the company sysadmin to buy
hardware for a database server, even with explicit instructions ... "Yes, I
saw which one you wanted, but the 2200S was on sale!"
