> If you make writes go out more often, they will be less efficient I think fsync is more important. But many writes + fsync is no good too. Let suppose that 30 WAL segments are good for performance (to be written at once). In incremental approach we can have 60 segments and we can write 30 at once. There is no checkpoint_timeout - more buffers will stay more time.
I can not see any disadvantage. Jordan Ivanov -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
