More on Pgpool-II: Errors that can be ignored during online recovery

Question: In the pgpool log, why are there some file not found errors like below? (These errors occurred during online recovery.)

FATAL:  the database system is starting up

Answer I found from author of pgpool: I think you can disregard these errors. The files rsync complains did
exist once so it was counted in the list to be copied. While rsync was
doing the job, they are disappeard, probably removed by PostgreSQL.
This could happen if PostgreSQL actively processes transactions, I
think. (
