Judging by the recent history, https://buildfarm.postgresql.org/cgi-bin/show_history.pl?nm=frogmouth&br=HEAD it's not 100% reproducible. (Either that, or we un-broke it and re-broke it within the last week, which seems improbable.) So unless you made quite a few successful runs with the lower MAX_CONNECTIONS setting, I'm dubious that there's really a connection. Having said that, I won't be a bit surprised if it is some sort of parallelism effect. I just don't think one test proves much. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
