We've long contended with isolation test results that aren't entirely stable. Some test scripts insert long delays to try to force stable results, which is not terribly desirable; but other erratic failure modes remain, causing unrepeatable buildfarm failures. I've spent a fair amount of time trying to solve this by improving the server-side support code, without much success: that way is fundamentally unable to cope with diffs that stem from chance ordering of arrival of messages from different server processes. We can improve matters on the client side, however, by annotating the test scripts themselves to show the desired reporting order of events that might occur in different orders. This patch adds three types of annotations to deal with (a) test steps that might or might not complete their waits before the isolationtester can see them waiting; (b) test steps in different sessions that can legitimately complete in either order; and (c) NOTIFY messages that might arrive before or after the completion of a step in another session. We might need more annotation types later, but this seems to be enough to deal with the instabilities we've seen in the buildfarm. It also lets us get rid of all the long delays that were previously used, cutting more than a minute off the runtime of the isolation tests. Back-patch to all supported branches, because the buildfarm instabilities affect all the branches, and because it seems desirable to keep isolationtester's capabilities the same across all branches to simplify possible future back-patching of tests.

PostgreSQL Database Management System ===================================== This directory contains the source code distribution of the PostgreSQL database management system. PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system that supports an extended subset of the SQL standard, including transactions, foreign keys, subqueries, triggers, user-defined types and functions. This distribution also contains C language bindings. PostgreSQL has many language interfaces, many of which are listed here: https://www.postgresql.org/download/ See the file INSTALL for instructions on how to build and install PostgreSQL. That file also lists supported operating systems and hardware platforms and contains information regarding any other software packages that are required to build or run the PostgreSQL system. Copyright and license information can be found in the file COPYRIGHT. A comprehensive documentation set is included in this distribution; it can be read as described in the installation instructions. The latest version of this software may be obtained at https://www.postgresql.org/download/. For more information look at our web site located at https://www.postgresql.org/.
