I think that can also be avoided, because by the time you call FreeSpaceMapVacuum(), you already have the required information based on which you can decide not to ask for freespace if required. Can't we avoid the new calculation you have added in fsm_vacuum_page(), as this function already updates the size, so might be we can get it from current calculation done in function. + #define RELPAGES_VALUES_THRESHOLD 1000 + #define FREESPACE_PERCENTAGE_THRESHOLD 0.5 Is there any basis to define above hash defines, we already have one number similar to above for deciding Truncate of relation. In anycase, I think the patch's direction is better than previous and can be further discussed/reviewed during next CF, as it's already quite late for 9.4. With Regards, Amit Kapila.
