The reloption does not set an exact value, according to the code: /* * Use the table parallel_degree, but don't go further than * max_parallel_degree. */ parallel_degree = Min(rel->rel_parallel_degree, max_parallel_degree); although the existing documentation for it is so vague that you couldn't tell from that. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
