In the case where node in a group are down, the master must keep the data they are missing for them to allow them to return to the replica role quickly.
By default, the master will retain up to 1hour of missed transactions. In a busy production system, the disk space occupied could be considerable.
This setting is controlled by virtualhost context variable
