I see your point. I'll add that if people like the interface you propose. (Overloading the VACUUM cost delay functions to cause a delay for amcheck functions, too). Note that the functions already use an appropriate buffer access strategy (it avoids blowing shared_buffers, much like VACUUM itself). -- Peter Geoghegan -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
