Comment 13 Tom Lane 2016-01-18 16:52:52 EST
What would actually be useful here is the tail end of the postmaster log --- do you have that?

The stack trace says that the failure occurred while trying to write pg_control during a database shutdown.  An error in that would lead to a PANIC exit, which does abort(), so the SIGABRT in itself is neither surprising nor indicative of a bug.  What would be interesting to know is why the write failed --- out of disk space? somebody mangled the permissions on the file? who knows?  ... but there should be an entry in the postmaster log reporting what errno we got.
Comment 14 Francisco de la Peña 2016-02-01 08:29:14 EST
I've read the log, however the postmaster log didn't have relevant shutdown information. There was enough disk space and the issue didn't happen again so far. I'll reopen if this happens again with relevant data.
