On an optimistic note, there might not turn out to be anywhere near as many distinct causes; there's typically a lot of amplification. The one patch I sent in eliminated screens upon screens of warning output from the PL/Java build (I made no effort to count them, I just listened to the noise in my speakers until I heard the scrolling stop). It might be fun to see how big a chunk of the 4106 would vanish just with the first tweak to one of the causes that's mentioned in a lot of them. (Unless your figures were already after culling to distinct causes, which would sound like a more-than-casual effort.) Trouble is, after that first taste of success beyond expectation, it gets like a drug. -Chap -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
