I'm working on Tom's idea. It is not a feature and does not change the on-disk-structures, so I hope it meet the 8.2 deadline...

I added a subxid array to Snapshot and running subxids are gathered from PGPROC->subxids cache. There are two overflowed case; any of PGPROC->subxids are overflowed or the number of total subxids exceeds pre-allocated buffers. If overflowed, we cannot avoid to call SubTransGetTopmostTransaction. I tested the patch and did not see any context switch storm which comes from pg_subtrans, but there may be some bugs in the visibility checking. It would be very nice if you could review or test the patch. Regards, --- ITAGAKI Takahiro NTT Open Source Software Center
