Explanation:

This log event occurs when a query can't be parsed by the Postgres SQL parser. Typically you would see this if someone mistyped a query in an interactive session.

It may also indicate a bug in application logic, especially when using handwritten SQL.

Recommended Action:

Fix the application code if this occurred outside of an interactive session.
