Thanks for updating the patches! They look good to me except that the formulas don't include the number of background processes requesting shared memory access, i.e., GetNumShmemAttachedBgworkers(), in 9.3. Isn't it better to use the following formula in 9.3? ceil((max_connections + autovacuum_max_workers + number of background proceses + 5) / 16) Attached patch uses the above formula for 9.3. I'm thinking to push your patches to 9.2, 9.4, 9.5, master, also push the attached one to 9.3. Comments? Regards, -- Fujii Masao
