I just have a couple of quick questions about 8.3 and Autovacuum.

1.  When autovacuum chooses to vacuum a table, the entire table is vacuumed,
and not just a specified percentage of the table.  Correct?

2.  There is no way, without turning autovacuum off, of excluding
vacuum/analyze during a specific period of time (say during a known peak
usage period).

3.  If I have a PostgreSQL cluster with 10 databases, does
autovacuum_max_workers=3 mean I have a possibility of 3 total workers or 30
workers (i.e. autovacuum_max_workers * number of db's)?

Thanks,

Chris
