Yeah, Josh mentioned the same. It would only take another three or four lines of code to decouple it from TouchSocketLockFiles, and then it's just a question of how much are you worried about the performance cost of additional file-open attempts. I think either one-minute or five-minute intervals would be pretty defensible. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
