I actually don't think it's that unreasonable to get notified when system-wide processes like the autovacuum launcher or the logical replication launcher start or stop. That's stuff somebody might want to know. It's not going to generate a lot of log volume, and it might be useful, so why suppress it? Where things get ugly is if you start to get a high rate of messages - e.g. from starting and stopping parallel query workers or other kinds of things where you might have workers starting and stopping very frequently. But surely this isn't an example of that. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
