So you're saying that wal_keep_segments is part of the max_wal_size total, NOT in addition to it? Just asking for clarification, here. I think that's a fine idea, I just want to make sure I understood you. The importance of wal_keep_segments will be fading as more people use replication slots. -- Josh Berkus PostgreSQL Experts Inc. http://pgexperts.com -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
