Description Rik van Riel 2005-06-06 11:48:44 EDT
Description of problem:

The postgresql install in Fedora and RHEL does not start database vacuuming of
any kind.  IMHO it would be a good idea to have pg_autovacuum running by
default, configured to analyse and vacuum the tables after reasonable intervals.
Reclaiming disk space is the one area I can think of where mysql is currently
better than postgres, it would be nice to close the gap here ;)
Comment 1 Tom Lane 2005-09-30 15:03:50 EDT
I think this would probably be reasonable to do in PG 8.1, where autovacuum is
built into the core database.  I don't have enough confidence in the external
contrib version of autovacuum to want to turn it on by default.
