    Unanswered: Filesystem allocation

    When does PG allocate filesystem space for a database? I know in Oracle you do it when the database is created (specifying the datafile sizes). Does PG do it the same way?

    PGSQL allocates spaces as needed. You might want to check out the 'dbsize' contributed script, BTW.
