Um, is that so ? And how is that done ? (e.g. bgwriter would need to
wait for or even initiate a WAL record sync)
Seems this is not clear to others eighter.
Why else would people think we need a full data scan after crash without
If this is true, all pages with possibly pending IO during crash will be
touched and could thus be checked during startup recovery.
I can see that we need to sync wal before write for certain changes, but
I don't see why we would currently need it for e.g. a heap insert, that
gets a free slot.
