We were doing a test and inserted 1.5 million rows. In doing so, postgres
created 974 WAL segments of 16MB apiece. The relevant configuration from my
wal_level = hot_standby
archive_mode = on
archive_command = 'test ! -f /mnt/postgresql-logs/%f && cp %p
max_wal_senders = 3
wal_keep_segments = 16
So, now I have 16GB of WAL segments, 974 of them. Will postgresql clean
this up? Will it remove these files? Will it create more with big inserts?
What is the best way to manage this?
