PostgreSQL version: 7.4
Operating system: linux
Description: Lock Timeout
This is more of an enhancement request, not a bug.
It would be nice if a lock timeout was implemented.
Currently postgresql causes a process to wait indefinitely until the record
I suppose there are many arguments for and against lock timeouts - but if it
were configurable, then developers could have the luxury of choice.
It would therefore be ideal if a LOCK_TIMEOUT (or similar) parameter (in
milliseconds) could be added to the conf file. A default zero value could
indicate the current indefinite behaviour.
Great product, keep up the good work. I'm currently migrating from MySQL and
this is the one and only explicit functionality compromise I've had to
Can't wait for version 8!
