Hmm ... so, thinking about pending list locking, would it work to acquire locks on the posting tree's root of each item in the pending list, when the item is put in the pending list? (even if we insert the item in the pending list instead of its posting tree). -- Álvaro Herrera https://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services
