The delay is intentional. Per pgstat_start():
* Do nothing if too soon since last collector start. This is a safety
* valve to protect against continuous respawn attempts if the collector
* is dying immediately at launch. Note that since we will be re-called
* from the postmaster main loop, we will get another chance later.
curtime = time(NULL);
if ((unsigned int) (curtime - last_pgstat_start_time) <
(unsigned int) PGSTAT_RESTART_INTERVAL)
last_pgstat_start_time = curtime;
Committed and back-patched all the way.
