Then why are you complaining about having to disable autovacuum after
each installation?

Because my hands hurt and I can't find my gloves. My back hurts (see the previous post about 135mph car crash), I have a huge headache and I am in a generally pissy mood.

I am human, I am allowed :)

But on a serious note, the problem I run into is exactly the opposite. Someone will turn on autovacuum because they thought it was a good idea and for their work load, it isn't. So instead of creating new and interesting ways to allow their database to be more efficient, I am dealing with snafu's created by my own community.

Leaving autovacuum on will cement the idea that it *should* be on and IMHO it shouldn't without specific and careful planning.

It may just be me, but I see as a lot easier to disable autovacuum than
to write the necessary cron jobs if it's disabled.
