The sql is a very long multi-query like select-join. All keys are indexed. When I run a load test with 70 connections continuously querying they all at some point stop receiving any network response (was Exception before I set Command Timeout = 0). I see many AccessSharedLocks started 15 minutes ago! Also there are several ExclusiveLocks for the same queries (why?). In pgAdmin this query is executed in 12 ms (at the same time!). The disk and CPU activity are both low.

SELECT relation::regclass, * FROM pg_locks WHERE NOT GRANTED;

- returns 0 rows so they are not waiting for locks.

The all queries have waiting = 'f'

How can I fix it?

Note that adding SSD somehow postpones this issue until higher load.

I use Npgsql at the client side. All client connections are just waiting at Socket.Receive.

My log settings are:

log_min_duration_statement = 1000   # -1 is disabled, 0 logs all statements
log_checkpoints = on
log_connections = on
log_disconnections = on
log_duration = on
log_lock_waits = on         # log lock waits >= deadlock_timeout
#log_statement = 'none'         # none, ddl, mod, all
log_temp_files = 0 # 0 logs all temp files

The log file is here https://1drv.ms/u/s!AhAvFYRsqyUIg6tvjXHPxe8iabOFWA

  • We need informations from your logfile... First, do your postgreSQL server logs temporary files, long queries, lock waits, checkpoints ? If yes, please post your postgreSQL log file. If no, please set it correctly. – Arkhena Aug 9 '17 at 8:48
  • @Arkhena ok, added – Vlad Aug 9 '17 at 9:03

The issue was caused by the bug in the Npgsql, it now works ok after updating to the latest version.
