I have a server which was happily running PostgreSQL, until a crash this morning. Trying to restart Postgres, but it fails:
sudo /etc/init.d/postgresql start Starting PostgreSQL 9.1 database server Removed stale pid file. The PostgreSQL server failed to start. Please check the log output: ...fail!
tail /var/log/postgresql/postgresql-9.1-main.log, I see several messages from before it crashed -- but no output from the restart. The older messages say:
UTC WARNING: pgstat wait timeout
OS: Ubuntu 12.04.3
