I have been given a task to try a proof of concept of migrating are active databases from PostgreSQL 8.0.1 to 8.2.3
I will install and configPostgreSQL on my local w/s and replicate the database users etc etc.
I have had a look inside /var/lib/pgsql/data/base and there are numerous files (db's) which I believe is where I can check data base size.
1 108012 114465 122407 1261267 1261963 17229 17233 17234 17235 174066 19247 205009 21272 2793694 2794334 333245 333375
I am aware that Postgresql creates directories to keep each database in.
These directories aren't names,they are kept as the *'OID's *of each
database (oid's are*"object identifiers"*).
Previously I just run pg_dump and thus run ls -lh on the db dump. Anyway
of checking a size of a given database I have tried
the sql using select pg_database_size ('dbaname'); but no joy.
