Thank you for verification.

The reason to disallow absolute path is that, we need to test on multiple platforms and to keep the scope little less.
I thought we can allow absolute paths in future.

In my opinion we can extend the utility in future for both the below points suggested:
1. allow absolute paths in file path
2. allow to get max lsn for relation segments.

If you are also okay, then we can proceed and let Committer also share his opinion.

Thank you for reviewing the patch.
