Viewing Server Configuration Parameter Settings

The SQL command SHOW allows you to see the current server configuration parameter settings. For example, to see the settings for all parameters:

$ psql -c 'SHOW ALL;'

SHOW lists the settings for the master instance only. To see the value of a particular parameter across the entire system (master and all segments), use the gpconfig utility. For example:

$ gpconfig --show max_connections
