TBH, I think *any* rearrangement of the on-disk storage files is going to be rejected. It seems very unlikely to me that you could demonstrate a checkpoint performance improvement from that that occurs consistently across different platforms and filesystems. And as Andres points out, the pain associated with it is going to be bad enough that a very high bar will be set on whether you've proven the change is worthwhile. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
