    Unanswered: pg_dump Error

    Hi All,

    I encountered an error on PostgresSQL. Here is details for the error which i have seen during the backup.

    pg_dump: SQL command failed
    pg_dump: Error message from server: ERROR: found toasted toast chunk for toast value 16431418 in pg_toast_16431418
    pg_dump: The command was: COPY.XXXXXXXXXXX

    So what i did i

    VACUUM ANALYZE <table_name>;

    it showed me the same errors, then i ran
    SET zero_damaged_pages = on;
    VACUUM FULL <table_name>;

    it zeroed out the bad page header, then i ran

    REINDEX table pg_toast.pg_toast_16306418;

    After running this command, I checked the other process which could be waiting but nothing was in the waiting except this query taking up 99% of CPU cycles. I waited for an hour and seems nothing was happening, i terminated the query.

    Then i ran full vacuum and reindexing of database but vacuum again failed
    vacuum did not complete

    I thought zero-ing out the invalid page header would allow me to back up the database but it did not do anything. Can someone suggest something please?
    I am fairly new to postgres so please be specific, if you can. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!
