Dear all,
i'm checking my postgresql server to try to monitoring all activity that are 
running.
i run this query:

postgres=#  select
current_timestamp - query_start as runtime,
current_query
from pg_stat_activity
order by 1 desc;

and the resul is many rows like this:


         runtime         |                current_query

...
...

i know that this is just a snapshot of the situation of the server in a 
particular moment, so i know that i can see all IDLE queries.
The strange thing is that there are quesries that are running from 34 days.I 
think is strange.
Do you have any suggestions? My postgresql version is 8.4. I know that in 
postgresql 9.0 i can see also application_name filed.
Thanks for your help
