I would have expected that the "stream" method would become the default. Just a short while ago it was proposed to remove the "fetch" method altogether, and it was only kept because of some niche use cases. I don't think "fetch" is the most safe method, because it requires wal_keep_segments to be configured. -- Peter Eisentraut http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
