I am working with PostgreSQL version 11, and would like to turn of autocommit. Either permanently or per query through a pl/pgsql command.
In the documentation it says it is turned off by default, else where it says it is turn on by default, not even the documentation is right about this, as psql does not recognize the config-parameter "autocommit", though the documentation mentions this variable explicitly.
Does anyone know how to turn it off?
(I am just running tests and "autocommit" might be one of the reasons that hinders performance)
