    Enterprise-level approach to PostgreSQL tuning: database experiments

    Shared_buffers = 25% – is it too much or not enough? Or it's the right value?

    How can we ensure that this – pretty much outdated – recommendation suit well our needs?

    It is time to start apply enterprise-level approach to tuning postgresql.conf. Not using various blind auto-tuners or advices from old articles and blog posts, but based on the following two aspects:

    1. comprehensive database experiments, conducted in automated fashion, repeated multiple times in conditions as close to production as possible, and
    2. deep understanding of DBMS and OS internals.

    Using Nancy CLI (https://gitlab.com/postgres.ai/nancy) we will consider a concrete example: infamous shared_buffers, under various circumstances, in various projects. We will try to figure out, how to optimize this settings for given infrastructure, database, and workload.
