Hi Tom,

     Postmaster is using these settings,  SHOW tells me all the settings 
are right as per the postgresql.conf settings. I am checking the log 
rotation after restarting the postmaster, Postgres was restarted last 
monday morning and it generated a new log file postgresql-15.log since 
then and up until now it is still writing to the same file , its been 
over a week and 6 hours now.

Pallav.
