PostgreSQL 9.5 預定提供的 Row Locking 改善

在「More Concurrency: Improved Locking In PostgreSQL」這邊提到 PostgreSQL 的 Row Locking 的改善,也就是 SELECT ... FOR UPDATESELECT ... FOR SHARE

查了一下 SELECT 的文件,在 7.2 開始提供 FOR UPDATE (PostgreSQL: Documentation: 7.2: SELECT),在 8.1 開始提供 FOR SHARE (PostgreSQL: Documentation: 8.1: SELECT),以維基百科上的紀錄來看,7.2 是 2002 年二月,8.1 是 2005 年十一月,都是已經提很久的功能了。

FOR UPDATEFOR SHARE 可以降低對 transaction 的依賴程度,PostgreSQL 的預設值是 READ COMMITTED,配合 Row Locking 就已經可以做到不少效果了,不需要用到 SERIALIZABLE 等級。

而在最新的 PostgreSQL 9.5 (目前還是開發版),則又多提供了 FOR UPDATE SKIP LOCKED 功能,以官方提供的範例來說,就可以直接避開選位造成的 lock 問題了:

This makes sense because 100 users checking for a free seat concurrently will get 100 different rows. The consequence is that you are not stuck with 1 CPU but you can nicely scale out to all CPUs in the system. As conflicts cannot happen anymore, nobody has to wait on somebody else.

對 locking 控制的更細微。
