One of the elements that had to be in place for this whole thing of multiple configuration files to be allowed was for pg_settings to include precise information about, for each setting, where is its value coming from. I doubt any of the systems you mentioned have comparable functionality. If the admin has trouble figuring it out, he needs only look into that view. -- Álvaro Herrera http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
