Are these allocations actually inside a critical section? It seems to me that the critical section starts further down, but perhaps I am missing something. Second, as Andres says, you shouldn't malloc() inside a critical section either; and anyway, certainly not without checking the return value. > I am not sure if the change will be a significant improvement from > performance point of view except it will save few condition checks. Moving that allocation out of the outer for loop it's currently in is *nothing* to do with performance, but about making the code easier to read. -- Abhijit -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
