I've just pulled and compiled the new code.
I'm running a TPC-DS like test on different PostgreSQL installations, but
running (max) 12queries in parallel on a server with 12cores.
I've configured max_parallel_degree to 2, and I get messages that backend
I am running the same test now with 6queries in parallel, and parallel
degree to 2, and they seem to work. for now. :)
This is the output I get in /var/log/messages
Nov 16 20:40:05 woludwha02 kernel: postgres: segfault at
7fa3437bf104 ip 0000000000490b56 sp 00007ffdf2f083a0 error 6 in
Is there something else I should get?
