PostgreSQL doesn't have the concept of an "audit log". So perhaps you can
explain exactly which functionality you are using for that purpose; then we
might figure out what happens when the disk is full.
In principle, however, you can try this out yourself, by creating a limited-
size partition and pointing your log there. That might give you a better
feeling for what exactly will happen.
