If you are using psql command line utility and wonder how you can set application_name…
If you try to set application_name using psql variable, it doesn’t work …
$ psql -d postgres -U elephas --variable=application_name=elephas_backup postgres=# show application_name ; application_name ------------------ psql (1 row)
psql -U elephas -d 'dbname=postgres application_name=elephas_backup' postgres=# show application_name ; application_name ------------------ elephas_backup (1 row)
You can export PGAPPNAME variable before making a connection .. $export PGAPPNAME=myapp $ psql -d postgres Type "help" for help. postgres=# show application_name ; application_name ------------------ myapp (1 row)
Hopefully, it will help you to track down psql connections coming from various places.
