Yes, "summary index" isn't good. I'm not sure where the block or the filter part comes in though, so -1 to "block filter", not least because it doesn't have a good abbreviation (bfin??). A better description would be "block range index" since we are indexing a range of blocks (not just one block). Perhaps a better one would be simply "range index", which we could abbreviate to RIN or BRIN. -- Simon Riggs http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
