Revues de code

  • Robert Haas reviewed KaiGai Kohei's patch to rework DROP by making 'missing_ok' support get_object_address.

Tom Lane a poussé :

  • Fix assorted issues with build and install paths containing spaces. Apparently there is no buildfarm critter exercising this case after all, because it fails in several places. With this patch, build, install, check-world, and installcheck-world pass for me on OS X.
  • Suppress -arch switches in the output of ExtUtils::Embed. We previously found out that OS X's standard perl installation tries to put -arch switches into Perl link commands, evidently in hopes of building universal binaries. But it doesn't work to add such switches in plperl's link step if they weren't being used earlier, so this is basically unworkable. When using gcc the result is only some warnings; but LLVM fails entirely, so this issue isn't as cosmetic as we originally thought. Hence, back-patch commit d69a419e682c2d39c2355105a7e5e2b90357c8f0 into pre-9.0 branches.
  • Fix oversights in pg_basebackup's -z (compression) option. The short-form -z switch didn't work, for lack of telling getopt_long about it; and even if specified long-form, it failed to do anything, because the various tests elsewhere in the file would take Z_DEFAULT_COMPRESSION (which is -1) as meaning "don't compress". Per bug #6060 from Shigehiro Honda, though I editorialized on his patch a bit.
  • Fix failure to account for memory used by tuplestore_putvalues(). This oversight could result in a tuplestore using much more than the intended amount of memory. It would only happen in a code path that loaded a tuplestore via tuplestore_putvalues(), and many of those won't emit huge amounts of data; but cases such as holdable cursors and plpgsql's RETURN NEXT command could have the problem. The fix ensures that the tuplestore will switch to write-to-disk mode when it overruns work_mem. The potential overrun was finite, because we would still count the space used by the tuple pointer array, so the tuplestore code would eventually flip into write-to-disk mode anyway. When storing wide tuples we would go far past the expected work_mem usage before that happened; but this may account for the lack of prior reports. Back-patch to 8.4, where tuplestore_putvalues was introduced. Per bug #6061 from Yann Delorme.
  • Rework parsing of ConstraintAttributeSpec to improve NOT VALID handling. The initial commit of the ALTER TABLE ADD FOREIGN KEY NOT VALID feature failed to support labeling such constraints as deferrable. The best fix for this seems to be to fold NOT VALID into ConstraintAttributeSpec. That's a bit more general than the documented syntax, but it allows better-targeted syntax error messages. In addition, do some mostly-but-not-entirely-cosmetic code review for the whole NOT VALID patch.
  • Use single quotes in preference to double quotes for protecting pathnames. Per recommendation from Peter Eisentraut. Neither choice is bulletproof, but this is the existing style and it does help prevent unexpected environment variable substitution.
  • Remove another no-longer-needed inclusion of predicate.h.
  • Index tuple data arrays using Anum_xxx symbolic constants instead of "i++". We had already converted most places to this style, but this patch gets the last few that were still doing it the old way. The main advantage is that this exposes a greppable name for each target column, rather than having to rely on comments (which a couple of places failed to provide anyhow). Richard Hopkins, additional work by me to clean up update_attstats() too
  • Obtain table locks as soon as practical during pg_dump. For some reason, when we (I) added table lock acquisition to pg_dump, we didn't think about making it happen as soon as possible after the start of the transaction. What with subsequent additions, there was actually quite a lot going on before we got around to that; which sort of defeats the purpose. Rearrange the order of calls in dumpSchema() to close the risk window as much as we easily can. Back-patch to all supported branches.
  • Don't use "cp -i" in the example WAL archive_command. This is a dangerous example to provide because on machines with GNU cp, it will silently do the wrong thing and risk archive corruption. Worse, during the 9.0 cycle somebody "improved" the discussion by removing the warning that used to be there about that, and instead leaving the impression that the command would work as desired on most Unixen. It doesn't. Try to rectify the damage by providing an example that is safe most everywhere, and then noting that you can try cp -i if you want but you'd better test that. In back-patching this to all supported branches, I also added an example command for Windows, which wasn't provided before 9.0.

Simon Riggs a poussé :

  • Respect Hot Standby controls while recycling btree index pages. Btree pages were recycled after VACUUM deletes all records on a page and then a subsequent VACUUM occurs after the RecentXmin horizon is reached. Using RecentXmin meant that we did not respond correctly to the user controls provide to avoid Hot Standby conflicts and so spurious conflicts could be generated in some workload combinations. We now reuse pages only when we reach RecentGlobalXmin, which can be much later in the presence of long running queries and is also controlled by vacuum_defer_cleanup_age and hot_standby_feedback. Noah Misch and Simon Riggs.
