I run out of disk space on the box and had to delete some files and restart postgres. Ever since I have been getting the above message. PS shows this process:
9351 ? D 0:04 postgres: startup process
Running an strace on this process shows that it is trying to write 8K of zeros to a file called 023D in pg_clog but fails at 224K and it just keeps trying forever.
I tried replacing the file with one I created - 256K as the other files in the pg_clog and filled with zeros. But it keeps doing the same thing :
open("pg_clog/023D", O_RDWR|O_CREAT|O_LARGEFILE, 0600) = 10
_llseek(10, 221184, , SEEK_SET) = 0
write(10, "\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"..., 8192) = 8192
fsync(10) = 0
Any ideas on what might be causing this and what I can do to fix it will be greatly appreciated. Need to get it fixed fast.
