Do you plan to reset it and if yes when? I think there is chance that after setting this environment variable, some other instance of server (postmaster) can read it and missed the signal which it should have otherwise processed. Irrespective of above problem, I think using environment variable might not be a good way to solve this problem. With Regards, Amit Kapila.
