pgstat_report_activity() and parallel CREATE INDEX (was: Parallel index creation & pg_stat_activity)

No. Just an oversight. Looks like _bt_parallel_build_main() should
call pgstat_report_activity(), just like ParallelQueryMain().

I'll come up with a patch soon.

Attached patch has parallel CREATE INDEX propagate debug_query_string
to workers. Workers go on to use this string as their own
debug_query_string, as well as registering it using
pgstat_report_activity(). Parallel CREATE INDEX pg_stat_activity
entries will have a query text, too, which addresses Phil's complaint.

I wasn't 100% sure if I should actually show the leader's
debug_query_string within worker pg_stat_activity entries, since that
isn't what parallel query uses (the QueryDesc/Estate query string in
shared memory is *restored* as the debug_query_string for a parallel
query worker, though). I eventually decided that this
debug_query_string approach was okay. There is nothing remotely like a
QueryDesc or EState passed to btbuild(). I can imagine specific issues
with what I've done, such as a CREATE EXTENSION command that contains
a CREATE INDEX, and yet shows a CREATE EXTENSION in pg_stat_activity
for parallel workers. However, that's no different to what you'd see
with a serial index build. Existing tcop/postgres.c
pgstat_report_activity() calls are aligned with setting
debug_query_string.

Thanks, ran the original test and it works great after the patch.

Two test suites segfault under the following configuration:

cat >/tmp/max_parallel.conf <<EOF
log_line_prefix = '%m [%p:%l] %q%a '
log_connections = 'true'
log_disconnections = 'true'
log_statement = 'all'
fsync = off
authentication_timeout = '600s'
wal_sender_timeout = '18000s'
wal_level = minimal
max_wal_senders = 0

# Maximize parallelism.  Many suites fail under these settings, due to plan
# changes.  That is not a bug, but new crashes do qualify as bugs.

force_parallel_mode = regress
min_parallel_index_scan_size = 0
min_parallel_table_scan_size = 0
parallel_setup_cost = 0
parallel_tuple_cost = 0
EOF
make -C src/test/modules/worker_spi check TEMP_CONFIG=/tmp/max_parallel.conf  # [1]
make -C src/test/subscription check PROVE_TESTS=t/010_truncate.pl TEMP_CONFIG=/tmp/max_parallel.conf  # [2]

In both, the crash is at the strlen(debug_query_string) from $SUBJECT.
worker_spi is easy to fix by setting debug_query_string, as attached.  Since
worker_spi has real query strings, I think that's an independent good.  In the
other suite, logical replication apply_handle_truncate() constructs an
ExecuteTruncateGuts() call without use of a query string.  Options:

1. Disable parallelism for the index build under ExecuteTruncateGuts().
   Nobody will mourn a performance loss from declining parallelism for an
   empty index, but I feel like this is fixing in the wrong place.
2. Make _bt_begin_parallel() and begin_parallel_vacuum() recognize the
   debug_query_string==NULL case and reproduce it on the worker.
3. Require bgworkers to set debug_query_string before entering code of vacuum,
   truncate, etc.  Logical replication might synthesize a DDL statement, or it
   might just use a constant string.

I tend to prefer (2), but (3) isn't bad.  Opinions?


(With debug_query_string fixed, 010_truncate.pl next fails with "cannot take
query snapshot during a parallel operation".  I'll report that separately,
probably on the thread for commit 039eb6e.)
