SHOW(7)                          SQL Commands                          SHOW(7)



NAME
       SHOW - show the value of a run-time parameter


SYNOPSIS
       SHOW name
       SHOW ALL


DESCRIPTION
       SHOW  will  display the current setting of run-time parameters. These variables can be set using the SET state-
       ment, by editing the postgresql.conf configuration file, through the  PGOPTIONS  environmental  variable  (when
       using libpq or a libpq-based application), or through command-line flags when starting the postgres server. See
       in the documentation for details.

PARAMETERS
       name   The name of a run-time parameter. Available parameters are documented in in the documentation and on the
              SET [set(7)] reference page. In addition, there are a few parameters that can be shown but not set:

              SERVER_VERSION
                     Shows the server's version number.

              SERVER_ENCODING
                     Shows  the  server-side  character  set encoding. At present, this parameter can be shown but not
                     set, because the encoding is determined at database creation time.

              LC_COLLATE
                     Shows the database's locale setting for collation (text ordering). At present, this parameter can
                     be shown but not set, because the setting is determined at database creation time.

              LC_CTYPE
                     Shows  the database's locale setting for character classification. At present, this parameter can
                     be shown but not set, because the setting is determined at database creation time.

              IS_SUPERUSER
                     True if the current role has superuser privileges.


       ALL    Show the values of all configuration parameters, with descriptions.

NOTES
       The function current_setting produces equivalent output; see in the documentation.  Also, the pg_settings  sys-
       tem view produces the same information.
