This case can arise if a transaction has written data, but only to temporary tables. Loss of the commit record in case of a crash won't matter, because the temporary tables will be lost anyway. Reviewed by Heikki Linnakangas and Simon Riggs. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=f6a0863e3cb72763490ceca2c558d5ef2dddd5f2">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=f6a0863e3cb72763490ceca2c558d5ef2dddd5f2</a></li> <li>Work around unfortunate getppid() behavior on BSD-ish systems. On MacOS X, and apparently also on other BSD-derived systems, attaching a debugger causes getppid() to return the pid of the debugging process rather than the actual parent PID. As a result, debugging the autovacuum launcher, startup process, or WAL sender on such systems causes it to exit, because the previous coding of PostmasterIsAlive() detects postmaster death by testing whether getppid() == PostmasterPid. Work around that behavior by checking the return value of getppid() more carefully. If it's PostmasterPid, the postmaster must be alive; if it's 1, assume the postmaster is dead. If it's any other value, assume we've been debugged and fall through to the less-reliable kill() test.

Per discussion with Greg Smith <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=7a1ca8977fd109a86b540444f71f24bd2f38ea43">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=7a1ca8977fd109a86b540444f71f24bd2f38ea43</a></li> <li>Improve "pg_ctl -w start" server detection by writing the postmaster port and socket directory into postmaster.pid, and have pg_ctl read from that file, for use by PQping(). <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=075354ad1bc0496c30dbd4dafb0f88a4d3e54cbc">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=075354ad1bc0496c30dbd4dafb0f88a4d3e54cbc</a></li> <li>Backpatch to 9.0 a doc mention that a BBU does not prevent partial page writes. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=c47458529533bc88e34778818a4ce7d5c309d7a8">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=c47458529533bc88e34778818a4ce7d5c309d7a8</a></li> <li>Remove quotes from boolean recovery.conf.sample parameters, now that the quotes are not required. This now matches postgresql.conf's specification of booleans. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=5000472112da91023bf468e57bb8ce9217426ed7">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=5000472112da91023bf468e57bb8ce9217426ed7</a></li> </ul> <p>Heikki Linnakangas a pouss&eacute;&nbsp;:</p> <ul> <li>Rewrite the GiST insertion logic so that we don't need the post-recovery cleanup stage to finish incomplete inserts or splits anymore. There was two reasons for the cleanup step: 1. When a new tuple was inserted to a leaf page, the downlink in the parent needed to be updated to contain (i.e. to be consistent with) the new key. Updating the parent in turn might require recursively updating the parent of the parent. We now handle that by updating the parent while traversing down the tree, so that when we insert the leaf tuple, all the parents are already consistent with the new key, and the tree is consistent at every step. 2. When a page is split, we need to insert the downlink for the new right page(s), and update the downlink for the original page to not include keys that moved to the right page(s). We now handle that by setting a new flag, F_FOLLOW_RIGHT, on the non-rightmost pages in the split. When that flag is set, scans always follow the rightlink, regardless of the NSN mechanism used to detect concurrent page splits. That way the tree is consistent right after split, even though the downlink is still missing. This is very similar to the way B-tree splits are handled. When the downlink is inserted in the parent, the flag is cleared. To keep the insertion algorithm simple, when an insertion sees an incomplete split, indicated by the F_FOLLOW_RIGHT flag, it finishes the split before doing anything else. These changes allow removing the whole "invalid tuple" mechanism, but I retained the scan code to still follow invalid tuples correctly. While we don't create any such tuples anymore, we want to handle them gracefully in case you pg_upgrade a GiST index that has them. If we encounter any on an insert, though, we just throw an error saying that you need to REINDEX. The issue that got me into doing this is that if you did a checkpoint while an insert or split was in progress, and the checkpoint finishes quickly so that there is no WAL record related to the insert between RedoRecPtr and the checkpoint record, recovery from that checkpoint would not know to finish the incomplete insert. IOW, we have the same issue we solved with the rm_safe_restartpoint mechanism during normal operation too. It's highly unlikely to happen in practice, and this fix is far too large to backpatch, so we're just going to live with in previous versions, but this refactoring fixes it going forward. With this patch, you don't get the annoying 'index "FOO" needs VACUUM or REINDEX to finish crash recovery' notices anymore if you crash at an unfortunate moment. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=9de3aa65f01fb51cbc725e8508ea233e4e92c46c">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=9de3aa65f01fb51cbc725e8508ea233e4e92c46c</a></li> </ul> <p>Michael Meskes a pouss&eacute;&nbsp;:</p> <ul> <li>Added rule to ecpg lexer to accept "Unicode surrogate pair in extended quoted string". This is not really needed because the string gets copied to the output untranslated anyway, but by adding this rule the lexer stays in sync with the backend lexer. <a target="_blank" href="http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=727a5a1620dd9f84036f8094f99a6ea494143bef">http://git.postgresql.org/gitweb?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=727a5a1620dd9f84036f8094f99a6ea494143bef</a></li> </ul> <p>Peter Eisentraut a pouss&eacute;&nbsp;:</p> <ul> <li>Move the documentation of --no-security-label to a more sensible place.
