backends

P: n/a
when i start the postmaster i have multiple backends running even though i
made sure to kill all the backends lingering from the previous run. is there
a reason for this?
while using gdb does it matter which backend's pid i use?
thanks

There will be a backend for each active connection, plus a
'postmaster' process (which handles the initial connection) and two
processes that handle statistics. So figure out which backend
corresponds to the connection you're using and attach to that.
