I don't think that's a good direction at all. This entire discussion is caused by the fact that it's not very clear what "max_parallel_degree" measures. Fixing that problem by renaming the variable to something that doesn't even pretend to tell you what it's counting is not an improvement. 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
