As far as I know it is possible to have third-party modules that extend the buildfarm client script so that it runs additional tests that the standard ones. You could have a custom module installed in some powerful machine of yours that runs the WAL consistency check and report the results to the buildfarm. A single animal running that test should be enough, right? -- Álvaro Herrera https://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
