The problem here is that "log" seems to be a verb in "log_collector" which is what makes it confusing. So we need another verb to make it clear that "log" is not one. This is not a problem with "autovacuum" because that one cannot be confused with a verb. start_log_collector still gets my vote. -- Alvaro Herrera http://www.CommandPrompt.com/ The PostgreSQL Company - Command Prompt, Inc. ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 5: don't forget to increase your free space map settings
