Is it possible to turn off serialization failure logging? If so, how?

For example, my log is filled with this example:

ERROR:  could not serialize access due to read/write dependencies among transactions
GMT DETAIL:  Reason code: Canceled on identification as a pivot, during commit attempt.
GMT HINT:  The transaction might succeed if retried.

log_statement is commented so left to the default none.

  • You cannot single out different types of ERRORs. You can etiher get rid of all of them or see them all. On the other hand, if this comes from a single user, you can disable the logging for it (but still, either all or none of them). – dezso Feb 2 '15 at 10:48

    Unfortunately, no. The inability to suppress errors or filter into different logs based on SQLSTATE is a significant wart in PostgreSQL IMO. Typos by users get logged the same as many serious internal problems. – Craig Ringer Feb 2 '15 at 13:42
  • @CraigRinger Interesting. I'll just add a mutex on these two queries in my application. Probably more correct anyways. Thank you. – Jim Bob Feb 3 '15 at 0:12
  • Mutex was a horrible idea. PostgreSQL manages it far better with retries. – Jim Bob Feb 5 '15 at 4:00
