I think you're failing to explain yourself very well. What you really mean is that we should use cluster_name not application_name to determine the name that a standby server reports to the master. There's something to that, perhaps, but I think that the mechanism we use for doing the reporting involves the application_name parameter passed through libpq. It might be a bit painful to change that, and I'm not entirely sure it'd be less confusing. 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
