Archiving it locally will give you a window of lost data if you crash. The point being - different people have different requirements, which is one thing our currently solution is very good at catering to - the downside being lots of work. I don't think dumbing down the system is a good idea - but shipping an example script probably is. -- Magnus Hagander Me: http://www.hagander.net/ Work: http://www.redpill-linpro.com/ -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
