See my remarks to Robert just now. I think that it's incredibly hard to set replacement_sort_tuples sensibly in 9.6. As of Postgres 10, it is much more likely to hurt than to help, because of the enhancements to merging that went into Postgres 10 reduced the downside of not using replacement selection. And so, for Postgres 11 replacement_sort_tuples deserves to be removed. -- Peter Geoghegan -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
