Perhaps my memory is failing me here... But in clean shutdowns we do shut down WAL senders after the checkpoint has completed so as we are sure that they have flushed the LSN corresponding to the checkpoint ending, right? Why introducing an inconsistency for logical workers? It seems to me that logical workers should fail under the same rules. -- Michael -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
