I don't buy that argument. It'd be nearly trivial to have a backend_tranchestats array, indexed by the tranche id, for such counters. It's really not particularly convenient to allocate tranches right now. You have to store at least the identifier in shared memory and then redo the registration in each process. Otherwise some processes can't identify them. Which of rather inconvenient of you want to register some at runtime --- Please excuse brevity and formatting - I am writing this on my mobile phone. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
