Bug reference:      15659
Logged by:          Thomas Poty
Email address:      (redacted)
PostgreSQL version: 10.7
Operating system:   CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core)
Description:        

In postgresql.conf, the mention of a required restart is missing for
"data_sync_retry" parameter :
- in the $PGDATA/postgresql.conf after an initdb
- in /usr/pgsql-10/share/postgresql.conf.sample

What I get :

#------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# ERROR HANDLING
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#exit_on_error = off            # terminate session on any error?
#restart_after_crash = on       # reinitialize after backend crash?
#data_sync_retry = off          # retry or panic on failure to fsync data?


#------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What I should have :

#------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# ERROR HANDLING
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#exit_on_error = off            # terminate session on any error?
#restart_after_crash = on       # reinitialize after backend crash?
#data_sync_retry = off          # retry or panic on failure to fsync data?
                                            # (change requires restart)
