pg_recvbuf errors

P: n/a
Hi,
i noticed in my server logs (which have grown to over 100mb) that i got
a lot of error messages saying pg_recvbuf: unexpected EOF on client
connection.

Could someone tell me the cause of this message and how to fix that ?

Thanks
Alex

This indicates a client disconnecting without sending a polite goodbye
(namely a Terminate or 'X' message). This isn't really dangerous,
unless the client failed partway through a transaction; but still you
might want to clean it up to avoid the chatter in the log.

Some of our client libraries used to be in the habit of just
disconnecting, so if you're using older client libraries then an update
is the first thing to try.

Otherwise, it's likely an application programming bug, ie, quitting
without closing down your database connections first.
