(Lists working ok?)
I have started testing PostgreSQL on windows. Now that I have managed to
import a dump of one of our production databases to postgres on my notebook,
there is one issue that came up immediatly after running VACUUM FULL:
pgwriter is keeping my disks busy and disturbs me :-(. The more I like
pgwriter for a production system, the less I like it on my desktop during
So I thought I would just be able to disable this, but that seems not the
#bgwriter_delay = 200 # 10-5000 milliseconds
#bgwriter_percent = 1 # 1-100% of dirty buffers
#bgwriter_maxpages = 100 # 1-1000 buffers max at once
bgwriter_percent can't be set to 0, neither can bgwriter_maxpages be, nor
can I set bgwriter_delay to something like 15 or 30 minutes...
For sympathy or pity for developers who are using postgres on a laptop or
desktop system, I would suggest that this is classified as a "convenience
bug" and fixed in a reasonable way.
