A64: Autovacuum launcher shutting down
SQLSTATE: 57P01 (Class 57 - Operator Intervention: admin_shutdown)
Example Postgres Log Output:
FATAL: terminating autovacuum process due to administrator command
LOG: autovacuum launcher shutting down
These log messages appear when the autovacuum launcher is shutting down, or gets terminated.
Note that the
FATAL message only occurs when an unexpected action is taken,
e.g. by an administrator running
pg_terminate_backend on the autovacuum
LOG message is not of much significance, and has been hidden
starting in Postgres 10.
LOG message no action is necessary, as you would usually see it during
If you see either of these messages outside the shutdown process it is worth
verifying whether the autovacuum launcher is still running, either by
checking the operating system's process list, or by checking
like this in Postgres 10+:
postgres=# SELECT pid, backend_start FROM pg_stat_activity WHERE backend_type = 'autovacuum launcher'; pid | backend_start -----+------------------------------- 26 | 2018-05-14 13:39:08.412156+00 (1 row)
