Thank you Andres, I missed those parameters appearing. It's not the case for
this customer, because they have an ancient version 9.0, but it's
interesting for others :)
The maximal value - 2MB - is it not to small? Regarding the fact that for
instance the same buffer will be updated 10 times between checkpoints and
bgwriter well be flushing it directly to disk 10 times instead to allow the
buffer to stay in the cache and do the update faster?
