Yes. Done! In terms of this project overall, NumLWLocks() now knows about only four categories of stuff: fixed lwlocks, backend locks (proc.c), replication slot locks, and locks needed by extensions. I think it'd probably be fine to move the backend locks into PGPROC directly, and the replication slot locks into ReplicationSlot. I don't know if that will improve performance but it doesn't seem like it should regress anything, though we should probably test that. I'm not sure what to do about extension-requested locks - maybe give those their own tranche somehow? I think we should also look at tranche-ifying the locks counted in NUM_FIXED_LWLOCKS but not NUM_INDIVIDUAL_LWLOCKS. That's basically just the lock manager locks and the predicate lock manager locks. That would get us to a place where every lock in the system has a descriptive name, either via the tranche or because it's an individually named lock, which sounds excellent. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
