    Unanswered: postmaster.pid file

    Is postmaster.pid will always be there under DATA_DIR?
    Even if we give "external_pid_file" value, is that mandatory that postmaster.pid has to be there under DATA_DIR?

    Yes, "postmaster.pid" file is mandatory to be there under data directory.
    "postmaster.pid" & "postmaster.opts" files will be created under PostgreSQL cluster Data directory,whenever you have started the cluster. If "postmaster.pid" does not exist in Data directory, it means you are PostgreSQL cluster is not running.
