woodlouse does not do ecpg-check, and Tom is right anyway. I need to get a 
large sign nailed to my forehead that says "Postgres is C, and declarations 
must come first."

I'm not sure, and not able to find out right this moment, why thrips' compiler 
does not accept this code now, because I tested it on thrips (and woodlouse, 
IIRC) before I sent it in.

Thanks for the review. Here I attached an updated patch with README update.


Hello,

the most recent update to VS 2017, version 15.3, now identifies as 
"14.11" rather than "14.10" in the output of nmake /?. Simply adding 
this value to the two places that check for 14.10 in your patch appears 
to work for me.


In a newly created project, PlatformToolset is still "v141". 
ToolsVersion is "15.0" whereas your patch uses "14.1".


ISTM that the ToolsVersion has been like this in all versions of VS 
2017; in my collection of .vcxproj files the auto-generated PostgreSQL 
projects are the only ones using "14.1".


The build is successful with either value.

I think there was some discussion on this topic, but I cannot find it in 
the archives. If there was, I certainly don't want to reopen any 
discussions.


All the best,

Re: [HACKERS] Buildfarm failures on woodlouse (in ecpg-check)

2017-06-14 Thread Christian Ullrich

* I wrote:

Patch.

Perhaps surprisingly, the bug is in the failing test cases themselves, 
not ecpg. The CRT has two modes for its locale implementation: When 
called in a "global" mode thread, setlocale() affects all global mode 
threads; when called from a per-thread mode thread, it affects that 
thread only. [1]


In the threaded test cases, many global mode threads call setlocale() 
simultaneously, getting in each other's way. The fix is to switch the 
worker threads to per-thread mode first.


Without this patch, I see crashes in approximately 25 percent of runs 
(four crashes in 16 cycles of vcregress ecpgcheck, ~10 in 50 runs of 
thread.exe alone). With the patch, I have no crashes in 100 ecpgcheck runs.


On the other hand, this affects only the buildfarm VM I mentioned 
earlier. I have another VM where it does not ever crash even without the 
patch -- such are the joys of multithreading. Both of them should have 
plenty of cores, both physical and virtual.



There are some alternatives to fixing it this way, but I think this is 
the best approach:


- Selecting per-thread mode in ecpglib takes the choice away from the
  developer who might want shared locale.

- Adding locking around setlocale() is difficult because ecpglib already
  uses a wrapper around the CRT function, provided by libpgport.

  These test cases are the only consumers of the wrapper that have any
  concept of multithreading. Supporting it in libpgport for the sole
  benefit of threaded ECPG applications on Windows does not seem to
  be a good idea, and re-wrapping the wrapper in ecpglib is not only
  beyond my abilities to write, but is also going to be unmaintainable.

- Adding locking around every setlocale() call in ecpglib is just ugly.


While working on this, I also noticed that there seem to be two separate 
partial implementations of a pthread synchronization emulation for 
Win32. One is in ecpglib, uses mutexes and provides 
PTHREAD_MUTEX_INITIALIZER and pthread_once(), the other has the header 
in src/port and the implementation in libpq, uses critical sections and 
does not cover either feature.


Should the two be merged at some point?

We already define _WIN32_WINNT to be 0x0600 on all appropriate platforms
(Vista/2008 and above), so I think you could probably just check for
that value.


Not quite; the definition depends on the build toolset, not the build 
platform. When building with VS 2015 and above, _WIN32_WINNT is set to 
0x600 (Vista/2008), while with older compilers, the value is 0x501 
(XP/2003). This is also due to locale issues, but of a different kind, 
and is apparently coincidental.


The build platform does not figure into the target platform, which is 
clearly a good idea for binary distribution reasons.

[HACKERS] Buildfarm failures on woodlouse (in ecpg-check)

2017-06-11 Thread Christian Ullrich

Hello,

my buildfarm animal woodlouse (Visual Studio 2013 on Windows 7) stopped 
working correctly some months ago. After Tom kindly prodded me into 
fixing it, I noticed that I had configured it to skip the ecpg-check 
step because one of the tests in the "thread" section (not always the 
same) nearly always failed.


I had set it up in circa 2015, so I reenabled the step to see whether 
anything had changed since, and it started failing again.


Through some trial and error, and with the help of Microsoft's 
Application Verifier tool, I found what I think is the cause: It looks 
like the VS 2013 CRT's setlocale() function is not entirely thread-safe; 
the heap debugging options make it crash when manipulating per-thread 
locale state, and according to the comments surrounding that spot in the 
CRT source, the developers were aware the code is fragile.


I crudely hacked a critical section around the setlocale() call in 
pgwin32_setlocale(). After this change, the test does not crash, while 
without it, it crashes every time.


If there is interest in fixing this issue that is apparently limited to 
VS 2013, I will try and produce a proper patch. I notice, however, that 
there is a pthread compatibility layer available that I have no 
experience with at all, and I assume using it is preferred over straight 
Win32?


My hack is attached; please feel free to tell me I'm on the wrong track.
To build correctly, it requires defining _WIN32_WINNT to be 0x600 or 
above (and using an SDK that knows about InitOnceExecuteOnce()).

Attached as 0001, 0002, 0003, in that order.

0004 is what used to be 0002, it disables caching of "DLL not

Agreed, attached as 0005.

0006 was previously known as 0004, removing all caching.

Tested with release builds; Core i7-6700K (quad/HT; 4000 MHz).
I did three runs each, and they were always within 0.5 % of each
other's run time.

- patch 1 (now 1-3): 24 μs/iteration (24 s for 1e6)
- patch 1+2+3 (now 1-5 + 8): 29 μs/iteration
- patch 1+2+4 (now 1-7): 30 μs/iteration

I also did a debug build with 1+2+4 that came in at 84 μs/iteration.

Yes.


By the way, how is it decided that a DLL gets unloaded in a process if
it is not pinned? Is that something the OS decides?


Reference counting in LoadLibrary() and FreeLibrary(), among other 
places. For example, GetModuleHandleEx() (but not the non-Ex) will by 
default increment the counter.

Looking at the commit logs and 741e4ad7 that does not sound like a good idea.


Well, I still maintain that if it doesn't work and has never worked, 
getting rid of it is better than making it work six years after the 
fact. OTOH, there may have been cases where it did actually work, 
perhaps those gnuwin32 libraries that were mentioned in the comment

the first call to the function.


OTTH, wouldn't it be funny if fixing it actually broke something that 
worked accidentally because it *didn't* get the updated environment? I 
think that is at least as likely as suddenly getting excited reports 
that something now works that hasn't before.



It is better to avoid !!. See for example 1a7a436 that avoided
problems with VS2015 as far as I recall.


Agreed, thanks for noticing. This change creates a warning, however,

No, it is exactly what the version-specific CRTs are meant to allow. 
Each module uses the CRT version it needs, and they don't share any 
state, so absent bugs, they cannot conflict.


Of the processes currently running on my system, 25 have more than one 
CRT loaded (one has three, the others two).

That was about DLLs existing in different versions with the same file 
name, and installers replacing them with their own, leading to problems 
with other applications that expected to load their preferred version. 
This does not apply to the multiple-CRT situation, because all minor 
versions of a given CRT are supposed to be ABI compatible.

Yes: This turns (this part of) pgwin32_putenv() into a great big NOP. We 
call putenv() anyway on the very last line of the function, so if we 
require common-CRT builds, that call alone (together with the 
SetEnvironmentVariable() just above) is sufficient.


That said, introducing this requirement would be a very significant 
change. I'm not sure how many independently maintained compiled 
extensions there are, but this would mean that their developers would 
have to have the matching VS versions for every PG distribution they 
want to support. Even if that's just EDB, it still is a lot of effort.


My conclusion from April stands:

When threaded Postgres is introduced in 2021, the version goes from 13

Losing a third of the version number means losing the ability to 
differentiate between significant-but-still-incremental improvements and 
(never-again)-stop-the-presses-this-is-great improvements; it's all just 
another major version. (Unless you'd want to jump from 13 to 20, 
effectively making the first digit special.)


Finally, from the, er, visual point of view, 10.1 and 10.2 look good and

Knowing only the first component would be very nearly as useless with 
two-part version numbers as it is today. The conversation will continue 
just the same:


- "No, what is the exact version?"
- ...
- "There have been several updates for that version since. Can you

In short, -1 from me, but I don't matter much ...

[HACKERS] Patch for German translation

2016-05-09 Thread Christian Ullrich

Hello,

here is a patch for the German translation that removes (all) five 
instances of *the* most annoying mistake ever.


By the way, is there any documentation anywhere about how and where to 
send translation patches? I'm just guessing here.

OK, how about this:

   
Add new SSPI authentication parameters compat_realm
and upn_username, to control whether NetBIOS or Kerberos
realm names and user names are used during SSPI authentication
    (Christian Ullrich)
   


Perfect, except for the implied idea of a "NetBIOS realm name", see 
below. I can live with that in release notes, though.



BTW, I went to read the descriptions of those parameters again, and this
one seems a bit confusing:

 
  compat_realm
  
   
If set to 1, the domain's SAM-compatible name (also known as the
NetBIOS name) is used for the include_realm
option. This is the default. If set to 0, the true realm name from
the Kerberos user principal name is used.
   
   
Do not enable this option unless your server runs under a domain
account (this includes virtual service accounts on a domain member
system) and all clients authenticating through SSPI are also using
domain accounts, or authentication will fail.
   
  
 

To my mind, an option that's set to 1 is "enabled".  Should the second
para read "Do not disable ..."?  Or maybe we should reverse the sense
of the flag, so that the default state can be 0 == disabled?


Well spotted, thanks. It should be "disable" instead.

This is left from when the sense of the option _was_ the other way 
around (it was called "real_realm" then). I reversed and renamed it 
after Magnus reviewed the patch and was -- correctly -- opposed to the name.


If the default state should be off, we're back to inventing a useful new 
name. Magnus suggested "sspi_netbios_realm", which could be shortened to 
just "netbios_realm", but I don't like to have both "NetBIOS" and 
"realm" in the name because nobody else calls a domain's NetBIOS name a 
"realm". (For the release notes, on the other hand, there is no need to 
split this hair quite so thin.)


Unless you _really_ want the default (that is, backwards compatible) 
behavior with the option off, I would rather keep it the way it is.

Re: [HACKERS] pgsql: Add putenv support for msvcrt from Visual Studio 2013

2016-04-26 Thread Christian Ullrich

* Christian Ullrich wrote:


wrong even without considering the debug/release split. If we load a
compiled extension built with a CRT we have not seen yet, _after_ the
first call to pgwin32_putenv(), that module's CRT's view of its
environment will be frozen because we will never attempt to update it.


Four patches attached:

master --- 0001 --- 0002 --- 0003
 \
  `- 0004

0001 is just some various fixes to set the stage.

0002 fixes this "load race" by not remembering a negative result 
anymore. However, ...



If it can happen that a CRT DLL is unloaded before the process exits,
and we cached the module handle while it was loaded, and later
pgwin32_putenv() is called, that won't end well for the process. This
might be a bit far-fetched; I have to see if I can actually make it happen.


... this *can* and does happen, so fixing the load race alone is not 
enough. 0004 fixes the unload race as well, by dropping the entire DLL 
handle/_putenv pointer cache from the function and going through the 
list of DLLs each time.


I tested this with a project 
(<https://bitbucket.org/chrullrich/pgputenv-demo>) that contains two DLLs:


- The first one is built with VS 2013 (debug), as is the server. It
  does not matter what it is built with, except it must not be the same
  as the second DLL. It exports a single function callable from SQL.

- The second one is built with VS 2015 (debug), and again, the exact
  CRT is not important as long as it is not the same as the server
  or the first DLL.

The function does this:

1. It loads the second DLL. This brings in ucrtbased.dll as well.
2. It calls putenv().
3. It unloads the second DLL. This also causes ucrtbased.dll to be
   unloaded because it is not needed anymore.
4. It calls putenv() again.

   - With current master, this works, because pgwin32_putenv(),
 after the first call somewhere early during backend startup,
 never looks for ucrtbased again (including in step 2).

   - With patch 0002 applied, it crashes because pgwin32_putenv(),
 having detected ucrtbased.dll and cached its HMODULE during
 the call in step 2 above, reuses these values after the DLL
 is long gone.

   - With patch 0004 applied as well, it works again because no
 caching is done anymore.

Even with patch 0004, there is still a race condition between the main 
thread and a theoretical additional thread created by some other 
component that unloads some CRT between GetProcAddress() and the 
_putenv() call, but that is hardly fixable.


The fact that master looks like it does means that there have not been 
many (or any) complaints about missing cross-module environment 
variables. If nobody ever needs to see a variable set elsewhere, we have 
a very simple solution: Why don't we simply throw out the whole #ifdef 
_MSC_VER block?


There is another possible fix, ugly as sin, if we really need to keep 
the whole environment update machinery *and* cannot do the full loop 
each time. Patch 0003 pins each CRT when we see it for the first time. 
GET_MODULE_HANDLE_EX_FLAG_PIN is documented as "The module stays loaded 
until the process is terminated, no matter how many times FreeLibrary is 
called", so the unload race cannot occur anymore.

[HACKERS] Parallel build with MSVC

2016-04-26 Thread Christian Ullrich
On my system, "build DEBUG" takes ~2.75 minutes. When I tell MSBuild to 
build in parallel by passing it the /m flag, that goes down to 1.5 minutes.


The first patch passes the value of the MSBFLAGS environment variable to 
msbuild's command line.


The output of parallel and sequential builds has identical file count 
and size after installing; all tests pass.


Even without /m, MSBuild will already run enough compilers to keep all 
CPUs busy whenever it can do that with only a single project's files. 
With /m, it will also process _projects_ in parallel.


One additional fix required is to put gendef.pl's "symbols.out" file 
into the directory it is working on, rather than the source tree root, 
to avoid collisions that cause the parallel build to fail otherwise.

Debug and release are simply two separate CRTs. If your process contains
a module that needs the one, and another that needs the other, you will
have both loaded at once.


pgwin32_putenv() is the gift that keeps giving.


According to its comment, it is not required that all modules exchanging 
calls with postgres.exe have to be built with the same CRT version (100, 
110, 120, etc.). Is it?


If not, the logic that remembers negative results from GetModuleHandle() 
(i.e. gives up forever on each possible CRT once it does not find it) is 
wrong even without considering the debug/release split. If we load a 
compiled extension built with a CRT we have not seen yet, _after_ the 
first call to pgwin32_putenv(), that module's CRT's view of its 
environment will be frozen because we will never attempt to update it.


If that code is in there because it has some noticeable performance 
advantage, the negative results could probably be reset in SQL LOAD, 
rather than just not remembering them anymore.



This comment is also incomplete then:

/*
 * Module loaded, but we did not find the function last time.
 * We're not going to find it this time either...
 */

This else branch is also taken if the module handle is set to 
INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE because the module was not found in a previous call.



If it can happen that a CRT DLL is unloaded before the process exits, 
and we cached the module handle while it was loaded, and later 
pgwin32_putenv() is called, that won't end well for the process. This 
might be a bit far-fetched; I have to see if I can actually make it happen.


One situation I can think of where this could occur is if an extension 
loaded with LOAD creates a COM in-proc server from a DLL built with yet 
another CRT, and when that object is released, either FreeLibrary() 
(transitively) or CoFreeUnusedLibraries() (directly) boots that CRT (if 
they do; it's possible that a CRT, once loaded, stays loaded.)



Finally: A nonzero handle returned from GetModuleHandle() is not 
something that needs to be CloseHandle()d. It is not actually a handle, 
but a pointer to the base (load) address of the module, although the 
documentation for GetModuleHandle() is careful not to admit that.


The value it is compared against to see whether we have seen the module 
before should be NULL, not 0.



It's getting a bit late for me today, but I will do the necessary 
experimentation and try to come up with a POC patch to fix whatever of 
the above I can actually prove to be real. Should anyone know for sure 
that I'm completely off track on something, better yet, everything, 
please let me know.


I should finish thinking before posting, then I would not have to reply 
to myself so often.

Debug and release are simply two separate CRTs. If your process contains 
a module that needs the one, and another that needs the other, you will 
have both loaded at once.


I had hoped they might share state, but they don't, at least as far as 
putenv()/getenv() are concerned.



Alternatively, can we detect at compile time if we are a debug build and
if so add the suffix?


No; same reason as above.

I think so, yes.

Personally, I would have expected that at least the debug/release DLLs

tried it and they don't.

This paragraph contradicts itself; it first says 2008 is the minimum 
version, right after that it supports 2005, too. The last version of
Visual Studio that will install on XP, 2003, Vista, and 2008 is VS 2010 
anyway, anything released after that requires at least 7/2008R2.


I would actually just say "is supported with Visual Studio 2005 [or 
possibly 2008] and higher" instead of listing versions. I don't think we 
need to recapitulate the system requirements of individual VS releases 
and anyone trying to install 2012+ on Vista will quickly find out it 
doesn't work. It would be different if we actually excluded particular 
VS versions or VS/OS combinations that are supported by VS itself, but 
we don't.

If you're going to copy it anyway, why not just use a HANDLE rather than 
cast it again later? It's only used in two places, cast to HANDLE in 
both, and the special case of -1 does not matter in either.

s/os/is/ in the last line.


This one doesn't matter, but just for perfection's sake:

+
+   memset(wctype, 0, 80 * sizeof(WCHAR));
+   MultiByteToWideChar(CP_ACP, 0, ctype, -1, wctype, 80);

The maximum length is documented as 85 characters, also:

: 
'Note   Your application must use the constant [LOCALE_NAME_MAX_LENGTH] 
for the maximum locale name length, instead of hard-coding the value "85".'

The thing that's being cast is not a PID, but a HANDLE to a process.
pid_t is a typedef for int (in port/win32.h), therefore is always 32
bits, while HANDLE is actually void*. However, Microsoft guarantees
that kernel32 HANDLEs (this includes those to threads and processes)
fit into 32 bits on AMD64.



Yes, when casting things this way I think that a comment would be fine
in the code. We could do that as separate patches actually.


We are already casting the pid_t to HANDLE and still getting a warning.
Apparently we need to do something on win64 like

(HANDLE) ((int64) bgchild)


Ah, OK, it warns about a cast to a larger type because the value might 
get sign extended. Not unreasonable.


In this case, I would prefer this:

With this change, pg_basebackup -X stream works the same when built for

Google returns not quite two pages of results for "Microsoft Visual

My best guess at this point is that the solution format really did not 
change between 2013 and 2015. Microsoft may just have added support for 
.sln version 14 for compatibility with people who generate solutions by 
other means and who are under the impression the .sln version has to be 
in step with the VS version, when in fact the VisualStudioVersion line 
in a version 12 .sln file controls which version of VS will open any 
given file by default, and the MinimumVisualStudioVersion line indicates 
which VS version supports the project types in the solution.


If my guess is wrong, and anyone knows a way to make VS 2015 write a 
version 14 .sln file, please tell me.

I doubt that's possible; the declaration *is* wrong after all. We could turn 
off the warning:

#pragma warning(push)
#pragma warning(disable : 1234, or whatever the number is)
#include 
#pragma warning(pop)

The thing that's being cast is not a PID, but a HANDLE to a process. pid_t is a 
typedef for int (in port/win32.h), therefore is always 32 bits, while HANDLE is 
actually void*. However, Microsoft guarantees that kernel32 HANDLEs (this

Source: 
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ee872017(v=vs.85).aspx,
 third bullet point.

So we can simply silence the warning by casting explicitly.

pg_regress, found because the VS 2015 compiler warns on the cast in the 
32-bit branch where apparently earlier versions did not.


According to git grep, this is the only place where WIN64 is used 
without the leading underscore.

Sorry, I don't think I'm up to that (at least not for another week or 
so). I have to read up on the issue first; right now I'm not sure what 
exactly the problem is.


What I can say is that the existing patch needs more work, because 
GetLocaleInfoEx() expects a locale name ("de-DE") as its first argument, 
but the patched win32_langinfo() is giving it a locale identifier 
("German_Germany.1252"). At least it does for me.


I have not gone through the code sufficiently closely to find out where 
the argument to win32_langinfo() originates, but I will when I can.


As for missing code page information in the _locale_t type, ISTM it 
isn't hidden any better in UCRT than it was before:


int main()
{
/* Set locale with nonstandard code page */
_locale_t loc = _create_locale(LC_ALL, "German_Germany.850");

__crt_locale_data_public* pub = 
(__crt_locale_data_public*)(loc->locinfo);

printf("CP: %d\n", pub->_locale_lc_codepage);  // "CP: 850"
return 0;
}

I think it should not take more than 16 characters, but if you want to make 
sure the code can deal with long names as well, MSDN gives an upper limit of 85 
for those somewhere.

Do you have a fix for the LPCWSTR parameter issue?


As long as the locale short name cannot contain characters outside of 
ASCII, and I don't see how it could, just the typical 
measure-allocate-convert dance, add error handling to taste:


int res = MultiByteToWideChar(CP_ACP, 0, ctype, -1, NULL, 0);
WCHAR *wctype = malloc(res * sizeof(WCHAR));
memset(wctype, 0, res * sizeof(WCHAR));
res = MultiByteToWideChar(CP_ACP, 0, ctype, -1, wctype, wctypelen);

If it is somehow guaranteed that ctype is only the most basic short name 
("xx-YY") with no code pages or anything, it becomes much simpler, of 
course, and I would just use a loop.


If the locale name can contain characters above 0x7f, we'd have to know 
the code page of the string we use to get the code page.

You miss all diagnostics from other tools than the compiler, for one thing.

There is a simple solution to that, however. MSBuild and VCBuild repeat 
all warnings and errors produced during the build at the bottom of the 
log. I just checked on mastodon (VS 2005, the oldest), and it does that 
already.


This depends on the whole build being done using a single solution file 
that contains all the individual projects, but there is no reason to 
assume we will start building individual projects instead, I assume.

Luck. I am getting a warning but the code is able to somewhat compile:
   src/port/chklocale.c(230): warning C4013: 'GetLocaleInfoEx'
undefined; assuming extern returning int
[C:\Users\IEUser\git\postgres\libpgport.vcxproj]


Weird. This assumed declaration is __cdecl, the actual function is 
__stdcall, and I think this should be guaranteed to crash.



But that's clearly incorrect to get that. As you are saying, what we
actually just need to do is bumping _WIN32_WINNT to 0x0600 when
compiling with VS2015, meaning that the minimum build requirement for
Postgres with VS2015 would be Windows Vista, and it would not be
possible to compile it on XP or Windows server 2k3. As XP is already
out of support, I think that this is an acceptable tradeoff, and it
would still be possible to build Postgres on XP with older versions of
Visual. Thoughts?


I think you confuse two things here, let's call them "build environment" 
and "build platform". The build environment is whichever Windows SDK 
(among other things) is installed; if it is a version for Vista or 
later, that just means it has the declaration in the first place, and 
has the import in kernel32.lib. The build platform is the OS the 
compiler is run on; as long as you find a compiler that understands the 
headers from your chosen SDK version, you can run it on Windows 95 if 
both of you want.


Changing _WIN32_WINNT also affects, indirectly, on which platforms the 
resulting binaries can run. Assume a macro that has an alternative 
definition, conditioned on _WIN32_WINNT >= _WIN32_WINNT_VISTA, that uses 
a function added in Vista. A binary built using this declaration, no 
matter where and when, will not run on anything older.



Anyway, attached are updated patches. This makes the warning go away
from my side, so I guess that it should allow Andrew to compile the
code.


Which brings us to the next problem:

  src/port/chklocale.c(233): warning C4133: 'function': incompatible
  types - from 'const char *' to 'LPCWSTR' [...\postgres.vcxproj]

I have no idea why I get this warning; I would have expected something 
more like this:


  localetest.cpp(26): error C2664: 'int
  GetLocaleInfoEx(LPCWSTR,LCTYPE,LPWSTR,int)': cannot convert
  argument 1 from 'const char *' to 'LPCWSTR'

Apparently the warning is triggered by type mismatches in pointer 
arithmetic, although I can't see any here. Anyway, it concerns the first 
argument in this call to GetLocaleInfoEx(), which here is a const char*.


According to the documentation and the prototype, however, it should be 
an LPCWSTR, because this function is Unicode-only (has no A/W variants). 
Unless LOCALE_IDEFAULTANSICODEPAGE also changes the interpretation of 
this first argument to a single-byte string, which is not mentioned 
anywhere in the documentation and makes no sense to begin with, I don't 
think this has ever worked either.


I just tested it, and, of course, if I pass '(LPCWSTR)"de-DE"' (narrow 
string cast to LPCWSTR), the call fails with ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER. 
With a wide string, I get the correct code page for the locale.



Also, while you're at it, could you improve the comments a bit? I have 
not yet tried following the code to see which locale formats it uses 
where ("German_Germany", "de-DE", etc.), but GetLocaleInfoEx() takes the 
short form and there is a comment about the long form right below that 
call once patched (in the old code that gets turned into an else branch).

Not out of the woods yet. Attached is what I got from VS2015 on a fresh W10
VM, with Michael's patch 0002 and 0004 applied.


Interesting, I have no idea what we are doing differently, and seeing
those errors it seems to me that Petr and I are actually getting it
wrong for some reason, because GetLocaleInfoEx should need a direct
declaration of windows.h. And similarly to some of the other files in
src/port I think that we should have it. Do you still get failures if
you add the following thing at the top of chklocale.c?

#if defined(WIN32) && (_MSC_VER >= 1900)
#include "windows.h"
#endif

Looking at the docs
(https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd318103%28v=vs.85%29.aspx),
winnls.h would be enough, but I'd rather be consistent with the
approach taken by the other files.


GetLocaleInfoEx() is covered by #if (WINVER >= 0x0600), we define 
_WIN32_WINNT as 0x0501 (src/include/port/win32.h) and WINVER inherits 
that value.


Michael, none of your patches change this, so how does it ever build on 
your system?


MSDN also says this about the function: "Header: winnls.h (include 
windows.h)"; so there's probably something else needed to make it work 
that is not in  alone.

[HACKERS] Lower msvc build verbosity level

2016-04-08 Thread Christian Ullrich

Hello,

could we perhaps lower the verbosity level of the msvc build (in 
src/tools/msvc/build.pl) from "detailed" to "normal"? In my experiment, 
this reduces the size of the build log by 96.4 percent (from 12.5 MiB to 
438 KiB), or if the log is not redirected, it shortens the build time by 
45 percent, from just under 6 minutes to 3.


The lines that would not be logged anymore are mostly "Task [or Target] 
so-and-so skipped, due to false condition". All the compiler, linker, 
etc. command lines are still there.


Also, with the "detailed" logs, loading the buildfarm status page for a 
failure in the Make stage is really painful.

The "14" is the toolset version, i.e. the Visual Studio 2015 C/C++

There are quite a few version numbers involved. Creating and building a 
C project in VS 2015 involves a solution file of version 12 referencing
a project file whose only version number is the 2003 in the XML 
namespace URL, feeding it to MSBuild version 14, which then invokes the 
compiler (in version 19). And then there is the  
element, where the 14 is repeated as "v140", at least, I think it is the

Ah-hah, that explains things nicely.  The previous coding in dolink()

Patch attached.


But then, should not this code make sure that errno *always* gets set?


A library function that does not fail does not touch errno. This link()

[HACKERS] [PATCH] Improve safety of FormatMessage() calls on Windows

2016-03-29 Thread Christian Ullrich
There are some instances of calls to FormatMessage() with the 
FORMAT_MESSAGE_FROM_SYSTEM flag that omit the 
FORMAT_MESSAGE_IGNORE_INSERTS flag. The effect of that is that if the 
requested message string contains any insertion markers, the call to 
FormatMessage() will fail because none of these calls pass an argument list.


This patch adds the ...IGNORE_INSERTS flag to these calls.

The documentation for FormatMessage() does not clearly say that a NULL 
argument list is not an implicit IGNORE_INSERTS flag, but Chen does at 
.

Weird. vcregress check works, install fails. Perhaps the directories are 
precreated for check?


Anyway, I think Michael's fix is wrong. The bug is that the Win32 
version of link() (at the bottom of zic.c) does not set errno if its 
attempt to copy the file fails, so what dolink() puts into link_errno is 
bogus.


The additional mkdirs() call just papers over the actual bug; the 
existing one in line 802 will do nicely once it actually runs.


Patch attached.

We absorbed some new code in zic.c for creating subdirectories of the
target timezone directory, and said code seemed a bit odd to me,
but I supposed that the IANA guys had debugged it already.  Maybe not.
Or maybe the problem is with some specific input file that gets
reached somewhere in that range?


My first guess was that it stumbles over the two-character directory 
name, but according to Michael Paquier's fix, that guess was wrong.

Yeah.  I've been staring at that for awhile, but it's not clear where

To be honest, I'm not sure what can and cannot be done in auth code. I took 
inspiration from the existing SSPI code and nearly every error check in 
pg_SSPI_recvauth() ends up doing ereport(ERROR) already, directly or via 
pg_SSPI_error(). If this could cause serious trouble, someone would have 
noticed yet.

What *could* happen, anyway? Can ereport(ERROR) in a backend make the 
postmaster panic badly enough to force a shared memory reset?

Oh, sorry, I misunderstood the question. Yes, it's due to convenience, but
a) it *is* rather convenient given the plentiful buffer I get, and
b) doing it differently involves char** inout parameters and potential
trouble with pointer aliasing in the caller, both things I'd rather avoid.

Because it's copied *into* domainname right there on the last line. 

That said, sizeof(domainname) is MAXPGPATH, which is 1024, so there is
absolutely no chance that the realm could be longer -- it would need an
AD forest at least 16 domains deep.

The single instance of malloc() has been replaced with palloc().


Another thing: This business of getting a SID, turning it into a user
name/domain pair, then using that to get the UPN (which probably involves
converting it to the SID again somewhere in between) does not look very good
to me. I'll have to see if it works, but what do you think about briefly
impersonating the client, just long enough to get the SAM and UPN names?


I did not pursue this further; it involves quite a bit more code 
including several more functions from secur32.dll. These might be a 
problem on MinGW according to the comment in auth.c regarding 
QuerySecurityContextToken() (if that is still accurate, because my 
mingw\lib\libsecur32.a apparently has the export).

What about "compat_realm" instead? "sspi_netbios_realm" is a bit long.
Also, the domain short name is not really a realm name, and this would

It fails. There is no UPN with a local account, so the conversion does not
happen, and I thought it would be best from a security POV to let the logon
fail rather than inventing a reason why it should succeed.

I wasn't sure which to prefer, so I looked around in auth.c, and other than

In an environment where sAMAccountName and userPrincipalName are different,
it might be preferable to have something to map in pg_ident.conf that is
actually a valid user name (UPN, in this case), rather than a mixture of 
both forms that isn't valid for either.

Also, since I already have the UPN, adding the option is basically free and
feels more useful than always throwing away half the information.


Another thing: This business of getting a SID, turning it into a user 
name/domain pair, then using that to get the UPN (which probably involves 
converting it to the SID again somewhere in between) does not look very good 
to me. I'll have to see if it works, but what do you think about briefly
impersonating the client, just long enough to get the SAM and UPN names?

[HACKERS] New Windows animal, mostly ecpg trouble (was: Crash with old Windows on new CPU)

Yeah, ideally we would have one buildfarm member for each MSVC compiler
supported by each Windows version.  AFAICS we only have

Windows 8 8.1 Pro Visual Studio 2012 x86_64
Windows Server 2008 R2 (64bit) Visual C++ 2005 AMD64
Windows Server 2003 R2 5.2.3790 MSVC 2005 Express 8.0.50727.42 x86
Vista Ultimate 6.0.6000 MSVC 2005 Pro 8.0.50727.867 x86
Windows XP-PRO SP3 MSVC++ 2008 Express i686


Add to that Windows 7 with Visual Studio 2013 (x64), named woodlouse, 
and there will be another one sometime over the weekend. Setting up 
Windows animals is a major pain; no wonder so few people run any.


I spent some hours getting rid of random linker errors in ecpg 
(kernel32.lib not found, msvcrt.lib not found, or unresolved symbols 
that should be in one of the two); they finally went away when I stopped 
defining the build environment in build-farm.conf and ran vcvarsall.bat 
instead (this was probably pilot error; I think I had a mix of x86 and 
x64 paths there). At that point, I managed one successful run on HEAD. 
Things started failing in ecpg again after that, with crashes of the 
test programs for the thread-thread and thread-prep test cases, 
apparently somewhere in setlocale(). I had to --skip-steps=ecpg-check 
because the crashes cause blocking UI.


The other troublemaker is plperl; it produces a wall of compiler errors 
which I cleverly did not copy, most are about something not being in a 
formal parameter list. Some preprocessor trouble, I suspect. This is 
with both ActiveState and Strawberry Perl.


I did not try Tcl, and plpython3 apparently builds, but I cannot see any 
tests being run.

I have no clue about MinGW, so all I can say is that msvcrt.dll (even in

anywhere else before or since.

No, that is fine. I think it's just to keep the function name from getting
too ridiculously long. The functions in  are all named
for the client versions only, and only check the version number, not the
client/server capability flags. Or, rather, there is a separate function to
determine that.



Presumably the link is documented somewhere (the docs don't seem to say
anything about it).

The internal version numbers (since NT4) are:

 Version | Client | Server
-++
 4.0 | NT4| NT4
 5.0 | 2000   | 2000
 5.1 | XP |
 5.2 || 2003
 6.0 | Vista  | 2008
 6.1 | 7  | 2008R2
 6.2 | 8  | 2012
 6.3 | 8.1| 2012R2
10.0 | 10 | [2016]

The relevant SDK header (), where constants for the version 
numbers are defined, also only has entries named for the client 
versions, with the sole exception of 2008, with the same value as Vista, 
and the special case of 2003 with no equivalent client version (unless 
you count the second attempt at an XP x64 ... but I digress again).


If Microsoft wanted the added complexity of separate symbols for what is 
basically the same code, I rather think they would have them.

Well, it doesn't flip it based on the specifics "running on a CPU with

no-op.


Precisely.

Why would the hardware be unsupported? The problem occurs on new CPUs, not old 
ones, and even the OS (2008) is still in extended support until next year, IIRC.

The bug exists in only that compiler version's CRT, also, that is not the 
complete version number. There may be different builds somewhere, but they all 
start with 18.0. 

After all, MS is in the business of selling new compilers, not maintaining the 
old ones.

The CRT version is tied to the compiler version. It has mainly to do with 
matching allocators.

Because all sources, including Microsoft, say that AVX2 support was added in 
7SP1.

It tells the math library (in the CRT, no separate libm on Windows) not to use 
the AVX2-based implementations of log() and possibly other functions. AIUI, FMA 
means "fused multiply-add" and is apparently something that increases 
performance and accuracy in transcendental functions.

I can check the CRT source later today and figure out exactly what it does. 

Also, if you look at the link I sent, you will find that a member of the Visual 
C++ Libraries team at MS is the source for the workaround. They probably know 
what they are doing, present circumstances excepted.

Hence all the conditions. The problem is *certain* to occur under these 
specific conditions (x64 code on Windows before 7SP1 on a CPU with AVX2 when 
built with VS2013), and under no others, and these conditions flip the switch 
exactly then.

OK, it turns out that the CRT source MS ships is not quite as complete as I 
thought it was (up until 2013, at least), so I had a look at the disassembly. 
When the library initializes, it checks whether the CPU supports the FMA 
instructions by looking at a certain bit in the CPUID result. If that is set, 
it sets a flag to use the FMA instructions. Later, in exp(), log(), pow() and 
the trigonometrical functions, it first checks whether that flag is set, and if 
so, uses the AVX-based implementation. If the flag is not set, it falls back to 
an SSE2-based one. So, yes, that function only and specifically disables the 
use of instructions that do not work in the problematic case.

The bug appears to be that it uses all manner of AVX and AVX2 instructions 
based only on the FMA support flag in CPUID, even though AVX2 has its own bit 
there.

To reiterate: The problem occurs because the library only asks the CPU whether 
it is *able* to perform the AVX instructions, but not whether it is *willing* 
to do so. In this particular situation, the former applies but not the latter, 
because the CPU needs OS support (saving the XMM/YMM registers across context 
switches), and the OS has not declared its support for that.

The downside to disabling the AVX implementations is a performance loss 
compared to using it. I ran a microbenchmark (avg(log(x) from 
generate_series(1,1e8))), and the result was that with FMA enabled, it is ~5.5% 
faster than without.

[HACKERS] Crash with old Windows on new CPU

2016-02-12 Thread Christian Ullrich

Hello,

I just found a compatibility issue when I was migrating an elderly VM to 
a new host. The VM is running Windows Server 2008 SP2, and it has the 
EDB build of PostgreSQL 9.4.5 on it. (9.4.6 behaves the same.) It is 
also not dependent on running in a VM; it would fail on the hardware as 
well.


Backends (and possibly other processes) crash at the slightest 
provocation, such as "SELECT * FROM pg_stat_activity;" or VACUUM. The 
log says either "exception 0xC005" (segfault) or "exception 
0xC01D" (illegal instruction).


The interesting reason: The old host had a Core-generation CPU, which 
does not support the AVX2 instruction set. The new one has a 
Haswell-generation one, and this one does. The EDB distribution of 9.4 
was built with the Visual Studio 2013 compiler, whose CRT (aka libc) has 
a bug where it uses AVX2 instructions if the *CPU* supports them, but 
does not care whether the *OS* does, and 2008 doesn't. That support was 
added in SP1 for 7/2008R2.


There is a workaround, see 
. 
It consists of a single function call, required only if the OS does not 
support AVX2.


I just tried it, and it appears to work. If there is any interest in 
fixing this, I'll be happy to prepare a patch. (Where would be the best 
place to put a function call from  that has to be done during 
startup of each server process, on Windows only?)


Otherwise, it may be time to update the manual (15.6 Supported 
Platforms) where it says PostgreSQL "can be expected to work on these 
operating systems: [...] Windows (Win2000 SP4 and later), [...]". 
Perhaps we could add "except Windows before 7 SP1/2008R2 SP1 when 
running in x64 mode on Intel CPUs introduced after May 2013 (Haswell and 
later)"?

This is my first patch review, but I have to get my feet wet at some 
point, and this is a nice, small patch to do that.


Following the checklist from the wiki:

- Is the patch in context format: Yes.

- Does it apply cleanly to master: Yes.

- Does it include reasonable tests, doc patches, etc.: No. While
  it would be nice if it had some, a test that inserts 2^32 rows
  will take a while and can hardly be called reasonable.


The patch is designed to expand the size of the "affected records" count 
in the command tag from 32 to 64 bits.


- Does it do that: Yes.

- Do we want that: Yes, because it is motivated by reports from users
  who have queries like that in real life.

- Do we already have it: No.

- Does it follow SQL spec or community-agreed behavior: This is not
  covered by the SQL standard and there has not, to my knowledge, been
  any discussion on this point on -hackers. It is, however, the
  obvious approach to solving the specific issue.

- Does it include pg_dump support: n/a

- Are there dangers: Existing applications and client libraries must
  support the increased maximum size (up to nine additional digits) and
  maximum value. libpq apparently does not parse the command tag, only
  stores it as a string for retrieval by PQcmdStatus(), so it is not
  affected in terms of parsing the value, and for storage, it uses a
  64-character buffer, which will overflow if the command name part of
  the tag exceeds 32 characters (63 - 19 [row count] - 10 [OID] - 2
  [spaces]). The longest command name I can think of is "REFRESH
  MATERIALIZED VIEW" which, at 25 characters, stays comfortably below
  this limit, and does not include a row count anyway.

- Have all the bases been covered: The patch changes all locations
  where the command tag is formatted, and where the record count is
  retrieved by PL/pgSQL.

- Does the patch follow the coding guidelines: I believe so.

- Are there portability issues/Will it work on Windows/BSD etc.:

  No, it will not work correctly on Windows when built with MSVC,

  use "%zu" instead of "%lu". pg_snprintf() is selected by configure if
  the platform's snprintf() does not support the "z" conversion. I tried
  this, and it appears to work:

postgres=# insert into t1 values (0);
INSERT 0 471147114712

  I have looked for other uses of "%lu", and found none that may cause
  the same issue; apparently they are all used with values that clearly
  have 32-bit type; actually, most of them are used to format error
  codes in Windows-specific code.

- Are the comments sufficient and accurate: Yes.

- Does it do what it says, correctly: Yes, except for the Windows thing.

- Does it produce compiler warnings: No. First, pg_snprintf() does not
  use the system implementation, and second, a warning (C4477) for
  this kind of format string mismatch was only added in VS2015, which
  is not officially supported (it works for me).

- Can you make it crash: No. The problematic argument always appears
  last in the sprintf() calls, so the format string issue should not
  be exploitable.

I did not run the regression tests or do the "performance" sections 
after I found the Windows issue. I do not think it will negatively 
affect performance, though.


In all, if replacing four "l"s with "z"s is indeed enough, I think this 
patch is an appropriate solution for solving the underlying issue.

This is my first patch review, but I have to get my feet wet at some point, and 
this is a nice, small patch to do that.

Following the checklist from the wiki:

- Is the patch in context format: Yes.

- Does it apply cleanly to master: Yes.

- Does it include reasonable tests, doc patches, etc.: No. While
  it would be nice if it had some, a test that inserts 2^32 rows
  will take a while and can hardly be called reasonable.


The patch is designed to expand the size of the "affected records" count in the 
command tag from 32 to 64 bits.

- Does it do that: Yes.

- Do we want that: Yes, because it is motivated by reports from users
  who have queries like that in real life.

- Do we already have it: No.

- Does it follow SQL spec or community-agreed behavior: This is not
  covered by the SQL standard and there has not, to my knowledge, been
  any discussion on this point on -hackers. It is, however, the
  obvious approach to solving the specific issue.

- Does it include pg_dump support: n/a

- Are there dangers: Existing applications and client libraries must
  support the increased maximum size (up to nine additional digits) and
  maximum value. libpq apparently does not parse the command tag, only
  stores it as a string for retrieval by PQcmdStatus(), so it is not
  affected in terms of parsing the value, and for storage, it uses a
  64-character buffer, which will overflow if the command name part of
  the tag exceeds 32 characters (63 - 19 [row count] - 10 [OID] - 2
  [spaces]). The longest command name I can think of is "REFRESH
  MATERIALIZED VIEW" which, at 25 characters, stays comfortably below
  this limit, and does not include a row count anyway.

- Have all the bases been covered: The patch changes all locations
  where the command tag is formatted, and where the record count is
  retrieved by PL/pgSQL.

- Does the patch follow the coding guidelines: I believe so.

- Are there portability issues/Will it work on Windows/BSD etc.:

  No, it will not work correctly on Windows when built with MSVC,
  although it may work with MinGW.

  %lu formats unsigned long. "long" is problematic in terms of
  portability, because sizeof(long) is different everywhere. It is 32
  bits on Windows and on 32-bit *nix, and 64 bits on 64-bit *nix.

  I added the following line to the INSERT formatting in pquery.c:

queryDesc->estate->es_processed += 471147114711LL;

Below is a patch to correct this behavior. I suspect it has some

Updated patch, sorry. The first one worked by accident only.


Another update. This time even the documentation builds.

One thing I'm fairly sure I need advice on is error handling and/or 
error codes. Right now I use ERROR_INVALID_ROLE_SPECIFICATION just about 
everywhere (because the surrounding SSPI code does as well), and that is 
probably not the best choice in some places.

here's a one-line patch to close a handle leak in pg_SSPI_recvauth().

According to the docs, the token retrieved with

[HACKERS] libxml2 2.9.3 breaks xml test output

2015-12-04 Thread Christian Ullrich

Hello,

I just noticed that last night all built branches failed on my buildfarm 
animal, jaguarundi. They all failed on the "xml" test, and the output is 
essentially the same everywhere:


***
*** 9,16 
  LINE 1: INSERT INTO xmltest VALUES (3, '');

xmlconcat
  --

The last thing I did in regard to XML on this system was upgrade libxml2 
from 2.9.2 to 2.9.3. I bisected it a a bit and the guilty commit to 
libxml2 is ce0b0d0d8 "Do not print error context when there is none" 
from about two weeks ago.


I have zero experience with libxml2, so no idea if the previous context 
level can be turned on again. IMHO, the libxml2 change is a bug in 
itself; PostgreSQL's error messages are more readable with the XML text 
in them.

I looked over the CCA animals and noticed that pademelon and gaur are

the Python version (2.5). There's nothing I can do about OS-related 
differences, but I thought I'd check the Python angle.


With Python 2.5.6, jaguarundi locks up on the plpython tests just the 
same as with 3.4, and friarbird with 2.7. So that is not the culprit, 
either.


I ran make check by hand, and noticed three tests where it seemed to 
hang (I gave it at least three minutes each, and the functions in the 
queries are simple):


plpython_spiSELECT cursor_plan();
plpython_setof  SELECT test_setof_as_list(1, 'list');
plpython_composite  SELECT multiout_simple_setof();

These are the only plpython tests that mention SETOF at all, and the 
queries that hung are the first ones in their respective tests to 
actually build a set.


Does that help?

Here's what it's been doing:

Same here, on jaguarundi. I actually killed it intentionally this 
morning, hoping that whatever the problem was might have been fixed 
already. No such luck.


I would suspect that it might have something to do with the OS, if all 
the other CCA animals weren't lining up nicely behind in the buildfarm 
status page.



I imagine it was in some sort of infinite loop. gdb says it's all in
src/backend/utils/cache/plancache.c, although not the same line each
time I run it.


I ktrace'd it this morning, but cleverly did not keep the dump. It 
looked much the same to me, though, it was reading the same filenode

You're referring to the suggestion of accepting and ignoring the option on

pg_ctl has a separate code path (well, #ifdef) for Windows anyway.

 The pg_upgrade test suite and the $(prove_check)-based test suites rely on
 their pg_ctl-started postmasters receiving any console ^C.  pg_ctl
 deserves a --foreground or --no-background option for callers that prefer
 the current behavior.  That, or those tests need a new way to launch the
 postmaster.

Ah. More good news. Just to confirm, this is only about the tests, right,
not the code they are testing?

If so, is there even a way to run either on Windows? The pg_upgrade test
suite is a shell script, and prove_check is defined in Makefile.global and 
definitely not applicable to Windows.

 Yes.  We normally recognize platform-specific options on every platform.
 For example, the effective_io_concurrency GUC exists on all platforms, but
 you can only change it on platforms where it matters.  In that light, one
 could argue for raising an error for --background on non-Windows systems.
 I don't have a strong opinion on raising an error vs. ignoring the option,
 but I do think the outcome of --background should be distinguishable from
 the outcome of --sometypo on all platforms.

I'm convinced, will change to --sometypo treatment.

 contrib/pg_upgrade/test.sh works under MSYS.  Perhaps $(prove_check)

Yes. That doesn't matter, though.

 There's a clone of contrib/pg_upgrade/test.sh in
 src/tools/msvc/vcregress.pl, and I expect it would have the same problem.

Oh, right. I didn't notice that because it doesn't mention upgradecheck in its 
usage message.

I think I know where we're talking past each other. You may be assuming that 
kill(postmaster, SIGINT) would be affected by my patch. It would not. 
PostgreSQL's signal emulation on Windows works completely separately from the 
actual Windows analogy to signals in console processes. My patch drops these 
analogous events, but the emulated signals still work the same way as before.

When Ctrl-C is pressed in a console window, pg_console_handler() in 
backend/port/win32/signal.c is called with a CTRL_C_EVENT, and converts that to 
an emulated SIGINT (unless I tell it not to). That emulated SIGINT is then 
processed as usual. pg_ctl -m fast stop sends the emulated SIGINT directly.

Anyway, I just ran upgradecheck, and it reported success without leaving any 
stale postmasters around.

  OK, here is the first draft against current master. It builds on Windows
  with VS 2012 and on FreeBSD 10 with clang 3.3. I ran the regression
  tests on Windows, they all pass.
 
  The changed behavior is limited to Windows, where it now silently
  ignores Ctrl-C and Ctrl-Break when started via pg_ctl start.
 
  I don't think there is currently any support for switch-type long
  options, so rather than invent my own, I squeezed the two lines I added
  into postmaster.c where they fit best; unfortunately, the result is
  quite ugly. I'll be happy to refine that if someone can give me a hint
  on how to do it.
 
 Overall, the patch seems good as it is based on the discussion.  I found a
 few problems:

Thank you for the review. I will rebase, retest, and resubmit as soon as I find 
the time, certainly sometime this week.

 (2)
 Although I haven't tried, doesn't pg_ctl start fail on non-Windows
 platforms
 because of the following check?
 
 !if (opt == '-')
 ! ereport(ERROR,
 !   (errcode(ERRCODE_SYNTAX_ERROR),
 !errmsg(--%s requires a value,
 ! optarg)));

On non-Windows platforms, the --background option is not passed, and the option 
handling is unmodified except for an additional pair of braces. The postmaster 
does not pass the option to its children on any platform.

 And, in the postgres reference page,
 
 http://www.postgresql.org/docs/devel/static/app-postgres.html
 
 there's a paragraph:
 
 The -- options will not work on FreeBSD or OpenBSD. Use -c instead. This
 is a bug in the affected operating systems; a future release of PostgreSQL
 willprovide a workaround if this is not fixed.
 
 Would --background work on FreeBSD and OpenBSD (i.e. would pg_ctl start
 succeed)?  I don't have access to those platforms.

pg_ctl does not pass the option anywhere but on Windows, and postmaster.c does 
not recognize it anywhere else. If it is encountered on a platform where it 
does not make sense, it will be treated like any other (unknown) long option.

This is actually the weakest point of the existing patch, in my opinion. 
Jamming the long option handling into postmaster.c by way of #ifdef WIN32 feels 
wrong, but I could not figure out a better way to do it.

 (3)
 --background will also be used by restart subcommand, won't it?
 
 + in a console window. It is used automatically by

Restart is implemented as stop/start, so, yes.

 Why not just pass a command-line switch?

Because, as I wrote in the message you are quoting, I did not think that
having a command-line option for the sole purpose of telling the 
postmaster who its parent is was a suitable solution. 

I had already given up on that idea based on Amit's advice, and I will 
create a patch based on a command-line option.

While I have you here, though, any suggestions on what the name of that
option should be? I think --background is about right. Also, how should
I treat the option on non-Windows platforms? Should it just not be there
(= error), or be ignored if present?

Yes again, using GenerateConsoleCtrlEvent() you can send these events to

the target process sees is the event, it cannot determine (nor does it

 I think there is chance that after setting this environment variable,
 some other instance of server (postmaster) can read it and missed the
 signal which it should have otherwise processed.

We have decided not to go this way, but just for completeness:

Environment inheritance works the same way on Windows as on Unix. When
a process is started with a modified environment (one of the plentiful
arguments of CreateProcess() et al.), only that process and its 
descendants see the modification. I had not planned to set a system-level
or user-level variable.

I meant creating a new one, yes. If, say, PGSQL_BACKGROUND_JOB was set, 
the postmaster etc. would ignore the events.

pg_ctl creates a named job object, and the postmaster has all the
information it needs to reconstruct the name, so it can check if it is
running inside that pg_ctl-created job.
 
 We are already creating one job object, so may be that itself can be
 used, but not sure if Job Objects are supported on all platforms on which
 postgres works.

I mentioned that in my earlier message; we cannot rely on having that job
object around. If the OS does not support them (not much of a problem
nowadays, I think; anything anyone is going to run the version this will
first be released in on is going to) or, more likely, if something uses
PostgreSQL as embedded database and starts it in a job of their own,
pg_ctl will not create its job object.

There may also be software out there that a) runs PostgreSQL in this way,
b) uses the console events to stop it again, and c) does that with or
without a separate job object. Hence, deciding based on the existence of
a job object would break backward compatibility in this case, assuming
it exists in reality.

 If you have to pass such information, then why don't pass some special
 flag in command to CreateProcess()?

Because I wanted to avoid introducing a command line option to tell the
postmaster who started it. If we cannot look at job objects, and an
environment variable is not an option either, then this looks like the
best remaining solution.

I will create a patch based on this approach.

 There is always a chance that we ignore the CTRL+C for some app which
 we don't intend if we solve the problem by passing some info, as some
 other app could also do so, but I think it should not be a big problem.

No. In fact, if whatever starts the postmaster does pass that flag, we
can safely assume that it did not do so just for fun.

 This fix won't allow CTRL+C for other cases like when server is started

 I think this doesn't come under your original complaint and as such I
 don't see any problem in allowing CTRL+C for above case.

Good point. I had not thought of that case. Just how do you tell if your 
postmaster was started by pg_ctl or directly on the command line?

- pg_ctl starts the postmaster through an intervening shell, so even if
  it did not exit right after that, we could not check the parent process
  name (assuming nobody renamed pg_ctl).

- pg_ctl starts the postmaster with stdin redirected from the null device,
  but so could anyone else. The same is true for access rights, token
  groups, and most everything else pg_ctl does.

- I don't want to add a new command line flag to postgres.exe just to tell
  it who its parent is.

- Job objects may not be supported on the underlying OS, or creation may
  have failed, or the interactive console may have been running in one
  already, so the sheer existence of a job is no proof it's ours.

There are some possible solutions:

- pg_ctl could set an environment variable (unless it has to be compatible
  with postmasters from different versions, and it does not, does it?).

  pg_ctl creates a named job object, and the postmaster has all the 
  information it needs to reconstruct the name, so it can check if it is 
  running inside that pg_ctl-created job.

I would appreciate some advice on this.

 One another way could be to use CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE instead of
 CREATE_NEW_PROCESS_GROUP in you previous fix, but I am not sure if it's
 acceptable to users to have a new console window for server.

It might. That would also isolate stderr logging from whatever else the
user is doing in the window, and it would work correctly in the pg_ctl
(and by extension the direct-postmaster) case. It would not do anything 
for events generated by keystrokes in the new console window, though.

There would also have to be a command line option to pg_ctl to either
enable or disable it, not sure which.

Re: [HACKERS] PostgreSQL in Windows console and Ctrl-C

2014-04-12 Thread Christian Ullrich
* From: Amit Kapila

 Another thing to decide about this fix is that whether it is okay to fix
 it for CTRL+C and leave the problem open for CTRL+BREAK?
 (The current option used (CREATE_NEW_PROCESS_GROUP) will handle only
 CTRL+C).

I can think of three situations in which a postgres process can run on
Windows:

- single backend
- console background via pg_ctl
- service

The only way to deliver a console event to a service process is by
calling GenerateConsoleCtrlEvent() with that process( group)'s PID. If
anyone does that, they will know what they are doing, so we can disregard
that. The other two are tricky. In single-backend mode, we probably expect
both to work as usual (ending the process), while in the pg_ctl case,
they should both be ignored.

Ignoring Ctrl-C in the postmaster and all children is simple, this is what
my patch does. Ctrl-Break is more difficult to do. It is not limited to 
the foreground process group, but is delivered to all processes attached
to the console that originates it. To ignore it, every process (postmaster,
backends, workers, etc.) will have to handle it in their own console
event handling function.

backend/port/win32/signal.c explicitly turns several of the console events,
including Ctrl-C and Ctrl-Break, into SIGINT. The simplest fix would be to
ignore Ctrl-Break there, effectively disabling it entirely under all
circumstances. I tried that, and it appears to work, but I don't know 
enough about the signal emulation and the interactions between the various
processes to be sure this is the right place to do it. Single-backend mode
has no need for signal handling and does not use the emulation layer, so
it is unaffected.

Below is a new (right now very much proof-of-concept) patch to replace
my earlier one. It has the same effect on Ctrl-C the change to pg_ctl had,
and additionally ignores Ctrl-Break as well.

Please be gentle.

[HACKERS] PostgreSQL in Windows console and Ctrl-C

2014-01-07 Thread Christian Ullrich

Hello all,

when pg_ctl start is used to run PostgreSQL in a console window on 
Windows, it runs in the background (it is terminated by closing the 
window, but that is probably inevitable). There is one problem, however: 
The first Ctrl-C in that window, no matter in which situation, will 
cause the background postmaster to exit. If you, say, ping something, 
and press Ctrl-C to stop ping, you probably don't want the database to 
go away, too.


The reason is that Windows delivers the Ctrl-C event to all processes 
using that console, not just to the foreground one.


Here's a patch to fix that. pg_ctl stop still works, and it has no 
effect when running as a service, so it should be safe. It starts the 
postmaster in a new process group (similar to calling setpgrp() after 
fork()) that does not receive Ctrl-C events from the console window.

because it fixes the path afterwards.

[HACKERS] Re: [GENERAL] postgresql-9.3.1-1-windows-x64.exe does not install correctly for me

The PostgreSQL installer for Windows 64 appears to be broken for Microsoft 
Windows Server 2012 Standard.

Even after uninstalling, removing the entire postgresql directory structure, 
and running the installer as administrator, I get this error:

fixing permissions on existing directory C:/Program Files/PostgreSQL/9.3/data ... initdb: 
could not change permissions of directory C:/Program Files/PostgreSQL/9.3/data: 
Permission denied


On earlier Windows versions, I have always had a similar issue. That was 
usually fixable by running the installation as a local Administrator, 
rather than a domain account. I'm not sure if that still applies to 
2012, though.

Re: [HACKERS] Bison 3.0 updates

I'm toying with the idea of a check_upgrade mode for the buildfarm
client where it wouldn't do a git pull, but would report changes if the
build result was different from the previous result. You'd run this
immediately after pulling new changes into your OS. Other, brighter
ideas welcome.


Might it be possible for the buildfarm client to query the various tools 
(compiler, autotools, flex, bison, perl, shell, etc.) for their version 
numbers and report those too? If the config page said since the last 
successful build, these commits have been added, and the compiler is now 
tomorrow's snapshot of gcc 4.8.4711, diagnosing a failed build could be 
easier.


This could be done either through the usual -V, --version flags or by 
asking the host's packaging system, although there are probably too many 
of the latter to support.


I would not want to have to implement this, but perhaps the client could 
also automatically drop back to the last known good commit if it gets a 
failed build immediately after a tool version change.
