I wonder if the FD_CLOSE and FD_WRITE being edge-triggered is the actual root cause for: /* * Just a workaround of unknown locking problem with writing in UDP socket * under high load: Client's pgsql backend sleeps infinitely in * WaitForMultipleObjectsEx, pgstat process sleeps in pgwin32_select(). * So, we will wait with small timeout(0.1 sec) and if socket is still * blocked, try WSASend (see comments in pgwin32_select) and wait again. */ if ((what & FD_WRITE) && isUDP) in pgwin32_waitforsinglesocket().
