Cheers for the quick reply. I've tweaked them quite a bit, but we have quite
a few heavily updated tables that i'd like vacuuming to keep them in check.
Unfortunately the autovacuum does a FULL vacuum every so often locking the
tables for quite a long time, i'd like to move these to the evening if
I guess the only option is to add the big tables to the pg_autovacuum table
and run a script to enable them in the evening?
I guess autovacuum picks up changes to the pg_autovacuum table...
Is a global flag something that could be added to a future release? Or is it
possible to get the autovacuum/db process to reload the config file while
running using pg_reload_conf() for example?
