when import the pbf file with : osm2pgsql --create --slim --flat-nodes /mnt/resource/nodes.cache /opt/osm/planet-190805.osm.pbf

then, the file /mnt/resource/nodes.cache must been keep for osm2pgsql --append ?

and will the osm2pgsql --append update the file /mnt/resource/nodes.cache for next running time?

and is the file /mnt/resource/nodes.cache need for mapnik etc.?

how about the performance different using --flat-nodes or not while osm2pgsql --create?

If you want to do updates with --append then you need to keep the flatnodes file, and specify it again with --flat-nodes when doing the update. If you do not want to do updates then you can delete the file.

The performance on the initial import is better with --flat-nodes if you have a large data set; for very small data sets (small country, or just a state or so) it can be faster without.

No, it is only accessed by osm2pgsql.
