The problem is that such thing happens very rare, and NOT at full load.
I can't monitor the system all the time. Is there any way to investigate
the situation by any of pgsql logs or enable something like full debug?
I do have a row-level lock (SELECT...FOR UPDATE) on another table during
this transaction, but one row are handled by not more than 2 processes
at once and it should be very quick (SELECT, parse data and UPDATE).
Thank you very much for you help!
Best regards, Nick.
