Hi, I've tried to apply the patch with the current HEAD, but I'm getting segfaults whenever VACUUM runs (either called directly or from autovac workers). The patch applied cleanly against 9b3ac49e and needed a minor fix when applied on HEAD (because of an assert added to ginRedoCreatePTree), but that shouldn't be a problem. The backtrace always looks like this: Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault. 0x00000000004dea3b in processPendingPage (accum=0x7fff15ab8aa0, ka=0x7fff15ab8a70, page=0x7f88774a7ea0 "", startoff=1) at ginfast.c:785 785 addInfo = index_getattr(itup, 2, accum->ginstate->tupdesc[curattnum - 1], &addInfoIsNull); (gdb) bt #0 0x00000000004dea3b in processPendingPage (accum=0x7fff15ab8aa0, ka=0x7fff15ab8a70, page=0x7f88774a7ea0 "", startoff=1) at ginfast.c:785 #1 0x00000000004df3c6 in ginInsertCleanup (ginstate=0x7fff15ab97c0, vac_delay=1 '\001', stats=0xfb0050) at ginfast.c:909 #2 0x00000000004dbe8c in ginbulkdelete (fcinfo=0x7fff15abbfb0) at ginvacuum.c:747 Reproducing the issue is quite simple: 1) create table messages (id int, txt text, ts tsvector); 2) insert into messages select i, substr(md5(i::text), 0, 4), to_tsvector('english', substr(md5(i::text), 0, 4)) from generate_series(1,100000) s(i); 3) vacuum messages 4) ... segfault :-( regards Tomas -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
