> Could we make this configurable, similar to log_line_prefix? Yeah, we could get rid of a lot of the need for value judgments in this area if we bit the bullet and provided infrastructure like that. It occurs to me that we could also remove the update_process_title GUC: what you would do is configure a process_title pattern that doesn't include the %-escape for current command tag, and the infrastructure could notice that that escape isn't present and skip unnecessary updates. The same kind of trick could be used for other potentially-expensive items like the lock "waiting" flag. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
