I can't imagine having separately compiled executables depending upon the write rate of different applications. What would you do if the write rate increases over time (like it usually does)? How would you manage a server farm like that? There's no practical answer there, just a great way to introduce instability where there previously wasn't any. -- Simon Riggs 2ndQuadrant http://www.2ndQuadrant.com -- Sent via pgsql-patches mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-patches
