I'm fine with either! Both are much better than the empty string. One of the problems with the status quo is that many users don't even realize that log_line_prefix exists, so they don't configure it at all. They don't even realize that they have the option to add a prefix. I think configuring a non-empty default will be both better by default and more likely to make people realize that they have choices. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
