Type: bool
Default: on
Context: superuser
Restart: false

Enables updating of the process title every time a new SQL command is received by the server. This setting defaults to on on most platforms, but it defaults to off on Windows due to that platform's larger overhead for updating the process title. Only superusers and users with the appropriate SET privilege can change this setting.


Updates the process title on OSes which support this. Very useful for checking resource usage by currently running queries.
