Looks neat, those are unlikely to overlap with other wait events. > Open issue: > - Might missed few standalone calls to read(), write(), etc which need > to pass the wait_event_info. It may be an idea to use LD_PRELOAD with custom versions of read(), write() and fsync(), and look at the paths where no flags are set in MyProc->wait_event_info, and log information when that happens. > Thanks to my colleague Robert Haas for his help in design. > Please let me know your thought, and thanks for reading. Did you consider a wrapper of the type pg_read_event() or pg_write_event(), etc.? -- Michael -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
