FWIW, I like the LWLockAssignBatch idea a lot better than the currently proposed patch. LWLockAssign is a low-level function that has no business making risky assumptions about the context it's invoked in. The other ideas are 9.5 material at this point, since they involve research --- but I agree with Heikki that LWLockAssignBatch could be snuck into 9.4 still. 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
