What need to do (understand, to devel) to allow several

Clustered shared memory, cluster-wide spinlocks. And with decent
performance, while at it ...
Perhaps could be interesting to look at cluster file system which
seems to have same problems and find solution about locking (i.e
OpenGFS).

I would have the pgsql-hackers genius for do that :) . I think its the
only feature which force company to buy 50000$ Oracle licence ...
I would note that Oracle first released OPS on UNIX at 7.0.13, in 1993.
Major performance issues were not resolved until 9i emerged, almost 10
years later...

It won't take PostgreSQL 10 years, but its impossible now, as Peter
