Does EF Core provide any hooks to set a run-time configuration parameter for each query on a DbContext?

For example, if I want to increase the work_mem for a given DbContext, I can do this, but the session is reset by the next query:

// returns 512MB
ctx.Database.ExecuteSqlCommand("SET work_mem = '512MB'; SHOW work_mem;");

// returns default value
ctx.Database.ExecuteSqlCommand("SHOW work_mem;");

What I'm imagining is something along the lines of a global query filter.

@roji Do you know of any way to do this?

There's nothing like this in EF Core as far as I'm aware...

We could look at it at the ADO level, via the connection string - that would have the advantage of sending the value in the PostgreSQL startup packet, which would naturally make it persist across connection resets etc... This would have to be checked though.
