Not sure if Andres is working on that for now or not, the main discussion that I am foreseeing here is how we are going to map elevel for the frontend (should FATAL, PANIC exit immediately, etc). I think as well that some sort of callback system would be needed to allow frontend clients to perform filtering of the log entries. Say pg_rewind has a --debug mode, so this would map with DEBUG1 entries, we'd need a way to control if those are issued or not depending on the frontend call arguments... Surely that's a cleanup patch 9.7 though, so there are a couple of months ahead of us... And that's not the highest priority now. Stability of 9.6 is first and just ahead. -- Michael -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
