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.
