That's a thought -- AFAIR we do provide a numeric_big test that's not exercised by the regular regress schedule, for a precedent. However, there's more work to do in isolation testing. It'd be good to have it being routinely run in serializable isolation level, for example, not just in read committed. I wouldn't want to overload the slowest machines in the buildfarm (some of which are already barely capable of running the tests on all branches in a 24h schedule, of which Stefan Kaltenbrunner is so proud), but if we could have a few of the fastest members running isolation and isolation-serializable, with max_prepared_transactions set to a nonzero value, that'd be great. -- Álvaro Herrera <alvhe...@commandprompt.com> The PostgreSQL Company - Command Prompt, Inc.
