  • Fix two typos, by Fujii Masao.;a=commitdiff;h=95e42a2c2980003880dee622fc3bed0b03322542
  • Fix bugs in the hot standby known-assigned-xids tracking logic. If there's an old transaction running in the master, and a lot of transactions have started and finished since, and a WAL-record is written in the gap between the creating the running-xacts snapshot and WAL-logging it, recovery will fail with "too many KnownAssignedXids" error. This bug was reported by Joachim Wieland on Nov 19th. In the same scenario, when fewer transactions have started so that all the xids fit in KnownAssignedXids despite the first bug, a more serious bug arises. We incorrectly initialize the clog code with the oldest still running transaction, and when we see the WAL record belonging to a transaction with an XID larger than one that committed already before the checkpoint we're recovering from, we zero the clog page containing the already committed transaction, leading to data loss. In hindsight, trying to track xids in the known-assigned-xids array before seeing the running-xacts record was too complicated. To fix that, hold XidGenLock while the running-xacts snapshot is taken and WAL-logged. That ensures that no transaction can begin or end in that gap, so that in recvoery we know that the snapshot contains all transactions running at that point in WAL.;a=commitdiff;h=5a031a5556ff83b8a9646892715d7fef415b83c3

Tom Lane a poussé :

  • Add a stack overflow check to copyObject(). There are some code paths, such as SPI_execute(), where we invoke copyObject() on raw parse trees before doing parse analysis on them. Since the bison grammar is capable of building heavily nested parsetrees while itself using only minimal stack depth, this means that copyObject() can be the front-line function that hits stack overflow before anything else does. Accordingly, it had better have a check_stack_depth() call. I did a bit of performance testing and found that this slows down copyObject() by only a few percent, so the hit ought to be negligible in the context of complete processing of a query. Per off-list report from Toshihide Katayama. Back-patch to all supported branches.;a=commitdiff;h=8b5692809707c0e15d04c530a3fed9347350ea01
  • Force default wal_sync_method to be fdatasync on Linux. Recent versions of the Linux system header files cause xlogdefs.h to believe that open_datasync should be the default sync method, whereas formerly fdatasync was the default on Linux. open_datasync is a bad choice, first because it doesn't actually outperform fdatasync (in fact the reverse), and second because we try to use O_DIRECT with it, causing failures on certain filesystems (e.g., ext4 with data=journal option). This part of the patch is largely per a proposal from Marti Raudsepp. More extensive changes are likely to follow in HEAD, but this is as much change as we want to back-patch. Also clean up confusing code and incorrect documentation surrounding the fsync_writethrough option. Those changes shouldn't result in any actual behavioral change, but I chose to back-patch them anyway to keep the branches looking similar in this area. In 9.0 and HEAD, also do some copy-editing on the WAL Reliability documentation section. Back-patch to all supported branches, since any of them might get used on modern Linux versions.;a=commitdiff;h=576477e73c4a9cb32c7471c1cec354fd5328140e
  • Clean up some copied-and-pasted code in pg_upgrade. 1. Don't reimplement S_ISDIR() and S_ISREG() badly. 2. Don't reimplement access() badly. This code appears to have been copied from ancient versions of the corresponding backend routines, and not patched to incorporate subsequent fixes (see my commits of 2008-03-31 and 2010-01-14 respectively). It might be a good idea to change it to just *call* those routines, but for now I'll just transpose these fixes over.;a=commitdiff;h=663fc32e26e8df41434d751e2203c1aa410d1916
  • Make S_IRGRP etc available in mingw builds as well as MSVC. (Hm, I wonder whether BCC defines them either...) Also label dangling endifs a bit better in this area.;a=commitdiff;h=5132ad8bdf8e85ea0054217ef7ee38c51ace4824
  • Reset all database-level stats in pgstat_recv_resetcounter(). We were failing to zero out some pg_stat_database counters that have been added since the initial pgstats coding. This is a bug, but not back-patching the fix since changing this behavior in a minor release seems a cure worse than the disease. Report and patch by Tomas Vondra.;a=commitdiff;h=0c90442355fbbe785740669f63141f24674c8958
