Well after kill -9, it was in recovery mode but I restarted the server
again. It took a while (~ 45min) but it connected again. I have noticed that
after a vacuum it takes a while to connect for the first time. You mentioned
kill -9 is very bad news. Everything seems to be working fine now, should I
be worried? What are the consequences?
