    Hi all,

    Thank you for your feedback on this post. We introduced the heartbeat mechanism to help with Postgres connector stability and monitoring several years ago.

    Since then, we have made substantial improvements to the performance, reliability, and functionality of the Postgres connector.

    We have determined this heartbeat mechanism is no longer necessary, and we will be removing this heartbeat from the connector.

    Thank you for all your feedback! Please let me know if you have any questions.

    If you provide me with the function definitions, I can create the functions and grant execute on these functions to the user login we use for Fivetran
