I think this is very important. We can't have roles that do both. That will just cause confusion. Security confusion. I'm confused about the definition of the pg_read_all_stats role. It seems to give read access to just about everything that rhymes with "stats" as well as a random collection of other things such as table sizes. Except actual table statistics, which was my first guess. -- Peter Eisentraut http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
