- /* Report to pgstat that this process is a WAL sender */ - pgstat_report_activity(STATE_RUNNING, "walsender"); + /* Report to pgstat that this process is running */ + pgstat_report_activity(STATE_RUNNING, NULL); Perhaps this bit should just be removed? We added it to make the process show in pg_stat_activity, and with this patch it does show up even without this call. -- Michael -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
