Hi, I encountered a situation where DROP SUBSCRIPTION got stuck when initial table sync is in progress. In my environment, I created several tables with some data on publisher. I created subscription on subscriber and drop subscription immediately after that. It doesn't always happen but I often encountered it on my environment.
ps -x command shows the following. 96796 ? Ss 0:00 postgres: masahiko postgres [local] DROP SUBSCRIPTION 96801 ? Ts 0:00 postgres: bgworker: logical replication worker for subscription 40993 waiting 96805 ? Ss 0:07 postgres: bgworker: logical replication worker for subscription 40993 sync 16418 96806 ? Ss 0:01 postgres: wal sender process masahiko [local] idle 96807 ? Ss 0:00 postgres: bgworker: logical replication worker for subscription 40993 sync 16421 96808 ? Ss 0:00 postgres: wal sender process masahiko [local] idle The DROP SUBSCRIPTION process (pid 96796) is waiting for the apply worker process (pid 96801) to stop while holding a lock on pg_subscription_rel. On the other hand the apply worker is waiting for acquiring a tuple lock on pg_subscription_rel needed for heap_update. Also table sync workers (pid 96805 and 96807) are waiting for the apply worker process to change their status. Also, even when DROP SUBSCRIPTION is done successfully, the table sync worker can be orphaned because I guess that the apply worker can exit before change status of table sync worker.
