Of course, then we're utterly dependent on the latch logic to be zero-failure, as any bug in it takes out the postmaster. That idea would've been rejected out of hand earlier in the development of the latch code. Maybe it's safe enough today, but I still wonder what it is that we're buying after we do such a massive rewrite of the postmaster. 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
