adminpack provides a number of support functions which pgAdmin and other administration and management tools can use to provide additional functionality, such as remote management of server log files.
The functions implemented by adminpack can only be run by a superuser. Here's a list of these functions:
int8 pg_catalog.pg_file_write(fname text, data text, append bool) bool pg_catalog.pg_file_rename(oldname text, newname text, archivename text) bool pg_catalog.pg_file_rename(oldname text, newname text) bool pg_catalog.pg_file_unlink(fname text) setof record pg_catalog.pg_logdir_ls() /* Renaming of existing backend functions for pgAdmin compatibility */ int8 pg_catalog.pg_file_read(fname text, data text, append bool) bigint pg_catalog.pg_file_length(text) int4 pg_catalog.pg_logfile_rotate()
