You're not going to get very far with using this feature if you are not looking in the logs for errors. These are asynchronously operating background workers, so the only way they can communicate problems is through the log. I don't disagree with your general premise. We have done a fair amount of fiddling already to show some errors as early as possible. But we can't know all of them, and we shouldn't give the impression that we do. -- 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
