remove_temp_files_after_crash Developer Parameter

Type: bool
Default: on
Context: sighup
Restart: false
Since: 14

When set to on, which is the default, PostgreSQL will automatically remove temporary files after a backend crash. If disabled, the files will be retained and may be used for debugging, for example. Repeated crashes may however result in accumulation of useless files. This parameter can only be set in the postgresql.conf file or on the server command line.
