No, no one measured the impact in the cases where wal_level=minimal makes a big difference, that I saw, at least. Further info with links to what was done are in my reply to Petr. As for checksums, I do see value in them and I'm pretty sure that the author of that particular feature did as well, or we wouldn't even have it as an option. You seem to be of the opinion that we might as well just rip all of that code and work out as being useless. Thanks! Stephen
