The following give the same error:

select max(100) from tab;
select max((select 1)) from tab;

Attached, please find updated patch based on above lines.  Due to addition
of projection path on top of partial paths, some small additional cost is
added for parallel paths. In one of the tests in select_parallel.sql the
plan was getting converted to serial plan from parallel plan due to this
cost, so I have changed it to make it more restrictive.  Before changing, I
have debugged the test to confirm that it was due to this new projection
path cost.  I have added two new tests as well to cover the new code added
by patch.

Note - Apart from the tests related to new code,  Dilip Kumar has helped to
verify that TPC-H queries also worked fine (he tested using Explain). He
doesn't encounter problem reported above [1] whereas without patch TPCH
queries were failing.

 I agree that using INT_MAX is more consistent with the code elsewhere in
 guc.c, and more correct given that we declare the variable in question
 as int not int32.  But you need to include  to use INT_MAX ...

I think although we are always adding a projection path in
apply_projection_to_path() to subpath of Gather path if target is parallel
safe, still they can be used directly if create_projection_plan() doesn't
add a Result node.  So changing them directly after being pushed below
Gather is not a safe bet.

Okay, I think you mean to say use create_projection_path() while applying
scanjoin_target to partial path lists in below code:
foreach(lc, current_rel->partial_pathlist)
{
Path   *subpath = (Path *) lfirst(lc);
Assert(subpath->param_info == NULL);
lfirst(lc) = apply_projection_to_path(root, current_rel,
subpath, scanjoin_target,
scanjoin_target_parallel_safe);
}

Some platforms seem to make it available from other headers too.
But AFAIK, POSIX only requires  to provide it.

Something like what you have there might work if you use
create_projection_path instead of apply_projection_to_path.

I agree that using INT_MAX is more consistent with the code elsewhere in
guc.c, and more correct given that we declare the variable in question
as int not int32.  But you need to include  to use INT_MAX ...

I'll review and push this patch, unless Robert or somebody else has
already started on it.  I concur with your choice of setting the default
value to 1024 blocks; that's close to the existing behavior but as a power
of 2 will look cleaner in GUC size units.

I think we can achieve it just by doing something like what you have

OK, so there are quite a number of separate things here:

1. The case originally reported by Thomas Munro still fails.  To fix
that, we probably need to apply scanjoin_target to each partial path.
But we can only do that if it's parallel-safe.  It seems like what we
want is something like this: (1) During scan/join planning, somehow
skip calling generate_gather_paths for the topmost scan/join rel as we
do to all the others.  (2) If scanjoin_target is not parallel-safe,
build a path for the scan/join phase that applies a Gather node to the
cheapest path and does projection at the Gather node.  Then forget all
the partial paths so we can't do any bogus upper planning.  (3) If
scanjoin_target is parallel-safe, replace the list of partial paths
for the topmost scan/join rel with a new list where scanjoin_target
has been applied to each one.  I haven't tested this so I might be
totally off-base about what's actually required here...

2. In https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/15695.1465827...@sss.pgh.pa.us
Tom raised the issue that we need some test cases covering this area.

3. In https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/25521.1465837...@sss.pgh.pa.us
Tom proposed adding a GUC to set the minimum relation size required
for consideration of parallelism.

4. In https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/1597.1465846...@sss.pgh.pa.us
Tom raised the question of whether there is a danger that
MinMaxAggPath might not be parallel-safe.

5. In https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/20391.1465850...@sss.pgh.pa.us
Tom proposed a patch to fix an apparent confusion on my part between
subplans and subqueries.

6. In 
https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/ca+tgmozwjb9eaibj-meeaq913wkkoz4aq7vqncfrdls9wyh...@mail.gmail.com
I discussed the need to fix the way consider_parallel is set for upper
rels, and in 
https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/22832.1465854...@sss.pgh.pa.us
Tom observed that, once that work is done, we can get rid of the
wholePlanParallelSafe flag.

I don't think it's remotely realistic to get all of this fixed in time
for beta2; I think we'll be lucky if we can get #1 fixed.  But we'd
better track all of these issues so that we can crank through them
later.

One more idea could be to have a flag (say parallel_safe) in PathTarget and
set it once we have ensured that the expressions in target doesn't contain
any parallel-restricted entry.  In
create_pathtarget()/set_pathtarget_cost_width(),  if the parallelmodeOK
flag is set, then we can evaluate target expressions for
parallel-restricted expressions and set the flag accordingly.  Now, this
has the benefit that we don't need to evaluate the expressions of targets
for parallel-restricted clauses again and again.  I think this way if the
flag is set once for final_target in grouping_planner, we don't need to
evaluate it again for other targets (grouping_target, scanjoin_target,
etc.) as those are derived from final_target.  Similarly, I think we need
to set ReplOptInfo->reltarget and others as required.

No.  I am suspicious that there's still a bug there, ie we're looking at
the wrong pathtarget; but the regression test doesn't actually crash.
That might only be because we don't choose the parallelized path.

Exactly.  The original pathification design contemplated that FDWs and
other extensions could inject Paths for the upperrels whenever they felt
like it, specifically during relation path building.  Even if you think
that's silly, it *must* be possible to do it during GetForeignUpperPaths,
else that hook is completely useless.  Therefore, adding any data other
than new Paths to the upperrel during create_grouping_paths is a broken
design unless there is some easy, reliable, and not too expensive way for
an FDW to make the same thing happen a bit earlier.  See the commentary in
optimizer/README starting at line 922.

I generally don't like rel->consider_parallel at all for basically this
reason, but it may be too late to undo that aspect of the parallel join
planning design.  I will settle for having an API call that allows FDWs
to get the flag set correctly.  Another possibility is to set the flag
before calling GetForeignUpperPaths, but that might be messy too.

You are right that such a variable will make it simpler to write tests for
parallel query.  I have implemented such a guc and choose to keep the name
as min_parallel_relation_size.  One thing to note is that in function
create_plain_partial_paths(), curently it is using PG_INT32_MAX/3 for
parallel_threshold to check for overflow, I have changed it to INT_MAX/3 so
as to be consistent with guc.c.  I am not sure if it is advisable to use
PG_INT32_MAX in guc.c as other similar parameters use INT_MAX.

Won't the patch as written will allow parallel-restricted things to be
pushed to workers for UNION ALL kind of queries?

Explain verbose Select * from (SELECT c1+1 FROM t1 UNION ALL SELECT c1+1
FROM t2 where c1 < 10) ss(a);

In above kind of queries, set_rel_consider_parallel() might set
consider_parallel as true for rel, but later in set_append_rel_size(), it
might pull some unsafe clauses in target of childrel.   Basically, I am
wondering about the same problem as we discussed here [1].

The main reason for removal of that code is that because there was no check
there to prevent assigning of parallel-restricted clauses to pathtarget of
partial paths.  I think the same is indicated in commit message as well, if
we focus on below part of commit message:
 "especially because this code has no check that the PathTarget is in fact
parallel-safe."

Due to above reason, I don't see how the suggestion given by you to avoid
the problem by using create_projection_path can work.

>

Fair enough, let me try to explain the problem and someways to solve it in
some more detail.  The main thing that got missed by me in the patch
related to commit-04ae11f62 is that the partial path list of rel also needs
to have a scanjoin_target. I was under assumption that
create_grouping_paths will take care of assigning appropriate Path targets
for the parallel paths generated by it.  If we see, create_grouping_paths()
do take care of adding the appropriate path targets for the paths generated
by that function.  However, it doesn't do anything for partial paths.   The
patch sent by me yesterday [1] which was trying to assign
partial_grouping_target to partial paths won't be the right fix, because
(a) partial_grouping_target includes Aggregates (refer
make_partialgroup_input_target) which we don't want for partial paths; (b)
it is formed using grouping_target passed in function
create_grouping_paths() whereas we need the path target formed from
final_target for partial paths (as partial paths are scanjoin relations)
 as is done for main path list (in grouping_planner(),  /* Forcibly apply
that target to all the Paths for the scan/join rel.*/).   Now, I think we
have following ways to solve it:

(a) check whether the scanjoin_target contains any parallel-restricted
clause before applying the same to partial path list in grouping_planner.
However it could lead to duplicate checks in some cases for
parallel-restricted clause, once in apply_projection_to_path() for main
pathlist and then again before applying to partial paths.  I think we can
avoid that by having an additional parameter in apply_projection_to_path()
which can indicate if the check for parallel-safety is done inside that
function and what is the result of same.

(b) generate the appropriate scanjoin_target for partial path list in
create_grouping_paths using final_target. However I think this might lead
to some duplicate code in create_grouping_paths() as we might have to some
thing similar to what we have done in grouping_planner for generating such
a target.  I think if we want we can pass scanjoin_target to
create_grouping_paths() as well.   Again, we have to check for
parallel-safety for scanjoin_target before applying it to partial paths,
but we need to do that only when grouped_rel is considered parallel-safe.

Thoughts?

I see you've committed a fix for this. Thank you.

I thought it would be good to be consistent with the ressortgroupref
handling, and I quite like your fix in that regard.

Do you think it's worth also applying the attached so as to have
ressortgroupref set to NULL more consistently, instead of sometimes
NULL and other times allocated to memory wastefully filled with zeros?

The patch also saved on allocating the array's memory when it's not needed.

I'm slightly mystified by this because we really shouldn't be setting
that flag more than once.  We don't want to do that work repeatedly,
just once, and prior to adding any paths to the rel.  Are you
imagining that somebody would try to created grouped paths before we
finish scan/join planning?

It doesn't sound like an especially good thing to me.  Skipping all
parallel path generation is quite a bit less work than trying each
path in turn and realizing that none of them will work, and there are
various places where we optimize on that basis.  I don't understand,
in any event, why it makes any sense to create the UPPERREL_GROUP_AGG
rel before we finish scan/join planning.

I'm kind of in a bind right now because Tomas has produced an
FK-selectivity patch rewrite on schedule, and I already committed to
review that before beta2, so I better go do that first.  If you can wait
awhile I will try to help out more with parallel query.

Having said that, the main thing I noticed in your draft patch is that
you'd removed set_grouped_rel_consider_parallel() in favor of hard-wiring
this in create_grouping_paths():

+   if (input_rel->consider_parallel &&
+   !has_parallel_hazard((Node *) target->exprs, false) &&
+   !has_parallel_hazard((Node *) parse->havingQual, false))
+   grouped_rel->consider_parallel = true;

I think this is bad because it forces any external creators of
UPPERREL_GROUP_AGG to duplicate that code --- and heaven help everybody
if anyone is out of sync on whether to set the flag.  So I'd rather keep
set_grouped_rel_consider_parallel(), even if all it does is the above.
And make it global not static.  Ditto for the other upperrels.

Also, I wonder whether we could reduce that test to just the
has_parallel_hazard tests, so as to avoid the ordering dependency of
needing to create the top scan/join rel (and set its consider_parallel
flag) before we can create the UPPERREL_GROUP_AGG rel.  This would mean
putting more dependency on per-path parallel_safe flags to detect whether
you can't parallelize a given step for lack of parallel-safe input, but
I'm not sure that that's a bad thing.

Yeah, I think that David and I goofed this up when adding parallel
aggregation.  I just wasn't thinking clearly about the way upper rels
needed to work with consider_parallel.  If you would be willing to do
any sort of review of the WIP patch I posted just upthread, that would
help.

Again, please have a look at the patch and see if it seems unsuitable

Oh, man.  I think you're right.  This is yet another piece of fallout
from upper planner pathification.  That was absolutely necessary
before, but now if we do the other bits right we don't need it any
more.

Well, if that were still the state of affairs, we could certainly consider
adding a parallel_safe flag to Plans as well as Paths.  But as you say,
it's moot now.

Yeah, I just ran into a different reason to think that.  I tried marking
MinMaxAggPaths in the same way as other relation-scan paths, ie

pathnode->path.parallel_safe = rel->consider_parallel;

but that did nothing because the just-created UPPERREL_GROUP_AGG rel
didn't have its consider_parallel flag set yet.  Moreover, if I'd tried to
fix that by invoking set_grouped_rel_consider_parallel() from planagg.c,
it would still not work right because set_grouped_rel_consider_parallel()
is hard-wired to consider only partial aggregation, which is not what's
going on in a MinMaxAggPath.  I'm not sure about the best rewrite here,
but I would urge you to make sure that consider_parallel on an upper rel
reflects only properties inherent to the rel (eg, safeness of quals that
must be applied there) and not properties of specific implementation
methods.  Also, please make sure that whatever logic is involved remains
factored out where it can be called by an extension that might want to
create an upperrel sooner than the core code would do.

BTW, do we need wholePlanParallelSafe at all, and if so why?  Can't
it be replaced by examining the parallel_safe flag on the selected
topmost Path?

Oh, one other thing about this: I'm not going to try to defend
whatever confusion between subplans and subqueries appears in that
comment, but prior to upper planner pathification I think we were dead
in the water here anyway, because the subquery was going to output a

I think you may be correct.

One problem that I've realized that is related to this is that the way
that the consider_parallel flag is being set for upper rels is almost
totally bogus, which I believe accounts for your complaint at PGCon
that force_parallel_mode was not doing as much as it ought to do.
When I originally wrote a lot of this logic, there were no upper rels,
which led to this code:

if (force_parallel_mode == FORCE_PARALLEL_OFF || !glob->parallelModeOK)
{
glob->parallelModeNeeded = false;
glob->wholePlanParallelSafe = false;/* either
false or don't care */
}
else
{
glob->parallelModeNeeded = true;
glob->wholePlanParallelSafe =
!has_parallel_hazard((Node *) parse, false);
}

The main way that wholePlanParallelSafe is supposed to be cleared is
in create_plan:

/* Update parallel safety information if needed. */
if (!best_path->parallel_safe)
root->glob->wholePlanParallelSafe = false;

However, at the time that code was written, it was impossible to rely
entirely on the latter mechanism.  Since there were no upper rels and
no paths for upper plan nodes, you could have the case where every
path was parallel-safe but the whole plan was node.  Therefore the
code shown above was needed to scan the whole darned plan for
parallel-unsafe things.  Post-pathification, this whole thing is
pretty bogus: upper rels mostly don't get consider_parallel set at
all, which means plans involving upper rels get marked parallel-unsafe
even if they are not, which means the wholePlanParallelSafe flag gets
cleared in a bunch of cases where it shouldn't.  And on the flip side
I think that the first chunk of code quoted above would be totally
unnecessary if we were actually setting consider_parallel correctly on
the upper rels.

I started working on a patch to fix all this, which I'm attaching here
so you can see what I'm thinking.  I am not sure it's correct, but it
does cause force_parallel_mode to do something interesting in many
more cases.

Anyway, the reason this is related to the issue at hand is that you
might have something like A LEFT JOIN (SELECT x, sum(q) FROM B GROUP
BY 1) ON A.x = B.x.   Right now, I think that the paths for the
aggregated subquery will always be marked as not parallel-safe, but
that's only because the consider_parallel flag on the grouped rel
isn't being set properly.  If it were, you could theoretically do a
parallel seq scan on A and then have each worker evaluate the join for
the rows that pop out of the subquery.  Maybe that's a stupid example,
but the point is that I bet there are cases where failing to mark the
upper rels with consider_parallel where appropriate causes good
parallel plans not to get generated.

I wonder if that's not just from confusion between subplans and
subqueries.  I don't believe any of the claims made in the comment
adjusted in the patch below (other than "Subplans currently aren't passed

A parallel-safe plan can be joined to a partial path at a higher level
of the plan tree to form a new partial path.  A non-parallel-safe path
cannot.  Therefore, if two paths are equally good, the one which is
parallel-safe is more useful (just as a sorted path which is slightly
more expensive than an unsorted path is worth keeping around because
it is ordered).  In practice, we don't yet have the ability for
parallel-safe paths from subqueries to affect planning at higher query
levels, but that's because the pathification stuff landed too late in
the cycle for me to fully react to it.

That is a good question.

I looked into this and found that the costs are considered fuzzily the
same, and then add_path prefers the slightly-worse path on the grounds
that it is marked parallel_safe while the MinMaxAgg path is not.  It seems
to me that there is some fuzzy thinking going on there.  On exactly what
grounds is a path to be preferred merely because it is parallel safe, and
not actually parallelized?  Or perhaps the question to ask is whether a
MinMaxAgg path can be marked parallel-safe.

This new patch still doesn't seem to be right, but it won't bring back the
original problem because apply_projection_to_path will be only done if
grouped_rel is parallel_safe which means it doesn't have any
parallel-unsafe or parallel-restricted clause in quals or target list.

It is slightly tricky to write a reproducible parallel-query test, but
point taken and I think we should try to have a test unless such a test is
really time consuming.

Do you mean to have it when we generate a complete GroupAgg Path atop of
the cheapest partial path?

I agree it's a hack, and I don't want to expose anything about the
number-of-workers scaling behavior, for precisely that reason.  But a
threshold on the size of a table to consider parallel scans for at all
doesn't seem unreasonable.

Just as an experiment to see what would happen, I did

-   int parallel_threshold = 1000;
+   int parallel_threshold = 1;

and ran the regression tests.  I got a core dump in the window.sql test:

Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

which I think may be another manifestation of the failure-to-apply-proper-
pathtarget issue we're looking at in this thread.  Or maybe it's just
an unjustified assumption in make_partialgroup_input_target that the
input path must always have some sortgrouprefs assigned.

Before getting to that point, there was also an unexplainable plan change:

   max 

I would not be surprised at a change to a parallel-query plan, but there's
no parallelism here, so what happened?  This looks like a bug to me.
(Also, doing this query without COSTS OFF shows that the newly selected
plan actually has a greater estimated cost than the expected plan, which
makes it definitely a bug.)

At this point I'm pretty firmly convinced that we should have a way to
run the regression tests with parallel scans considered for even very
small tables.  If someone doesn't want that way to be a GUC, you'd better
propose another solution.

BTW, decent regression tests could be written without the need to create
enormous tables if the minimum rel size in create_plain_partial_paths()
could be configured to something less than 1000 blocks.  I think it's
fairly crazy that that arbitrary constant is hard-wired anyway.  Should
we make it a GUC?

The problem cited in 04ae11f62's commit message is that
apply_projection_to_path would overwrite the paths' pathtargets in-place,
causing problems if they'd been used for other purposes elsewhere.  I do
not share your confidence that using apply_projection_to_path within
create_grouping_paths is free of such a hazard.

I think the real question here is why the code removed by 04ae11f62
was wrong.  It was unsafe to use apply_projection_to_path, certainly,
but using create_projection_path directly would have avoided the
stated problem.  And it's very unclear that this new patch doesn't
bring back that bug in a different place.

I am not very happy that neither 04ae11f62 nor this patch include
any regression test case proving that a problem existed and has
been fixed.

It doesn't seem like a good idea to destructive modify
input_rel->partial_pathlist.  Applying the projection to each path
before using it would probably be better.

Hi,

I applied your patch and run tpc-h.
Then I got new errors on Q4,12,17 and 19.

In create_grouping_paths(), we are building partial_grouping_path and same is 
used for gather path and other grouping paths (for partial paths). However, we 
don't use it for partial path list and sort path due to which path target for 
Sort path is different from what we have expected.  Is there a problem in 
applying  partial_grouping_path for partial pathlist?   Attached patch just 
does that and I don't see error with patch.

Hi,


Subject: Re: [HACKERS] ORDER/GROUP BY expression not found in targetlist
Date: Thu, 09 Jun 2016 12:08:01 +0900


Right, I saw that thread which involved the same error message:

https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/flat/20160526021235.w4nq7k3gnheg7vit%40alap3.anarazel.de#20160526021235.w4nq7k3gnheg7...@alap3.anarazel.de

... but that seems to be a different problem than the one you and I
have seen, it involved repeated references to columns in the tlist.
It was fixed with this commit:

commit aeb9ae6457865c8949641d71a9523374d843a418
Author: Tom Lane 
Date:   Thu May 26 14:52:24 2016 -0400

 Disable physical tlist if any Var would need multiple sortgroupref labels.


I use this version:f721e94 to run tpc-h on last week.
This patch is commited at Jun 8. If it fixed, I didn't get the error.

Seems like this was caused by 04ae11f62e643e07c411c4935ea6af46cb112aa9

I missed the discussion on this commit, so I'll go look for that now.
