I don't have a clue why it's like that. It seems like it should be PGC_USERSSET just like, say, work_mem. I think that's just brain fade on my part, and I think the current setting will be really inconvenient for unprivileged users: as it is, they have no way to turn parallel query off. Unless somebody objects, I'll go change that. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
