In fairness to Andres, while *you* may know that issuing an expensive syscall in a tight loop is on the list of Forbidden Things, a lot of people don't and it's pretty reasonable to issue methodology objections in order to get them documented. Anyways, I'm still curious if you can post similar numbers basing the throttling on gross allocation counts instead of time. Meaning: some number of buffer allocations has to have occurred before you consider eviction. Besides being faster I think it's a better implementation: an intermittently loaded server will give more consistent behavior. merlin -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
