Proposed patch from upstream
Description of problem:
autovacuum daemon crashes with a segfault after vacuuming a whole database.
Customer suspects this addressed by the patch discussed on the upstream mailing list:
That went in revision 126.96.36.199 of pgsql/src/backend/postmaster in branch REL8_1_STABLE:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Vacuum whole database and autovacuum daemon crash infrequently.
autovacuum daemon crash infrequently.
autovacuum daemon does not crash.
Awaiting a core file from customer to confirm this is actually the same problem, but opening BZ in advance as upstream patch has been proposed by Red Hat engineer.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
This got fixed (but not release-noted :-() as a byproduct of a security update to 8.1.18 a couple months ago.
