The application_name can be any string of less than NAMEDATALEN
characters (64 characters in a standard build). It is typically set
by an application upon connection to the server. The name will be
displayed in the pg_stat_activity view and included in CSV log
entries. It can also be included in regular log entries via the
parameter. Only printable ASCII characters may be used in the
application_name value. Other characters will be replaced with
question marks (?).
Google can be your friend!
