In that case you need to change max_connections, some settings will lead to unaligned BufferDescriptors. > I > tested pgbench with these commands: > > $ pgbench -i -s 95 pgbench > $ pgbench -S -c 95 -j 95 -t 100000 pgbench > > on a 16-core Xeon server and got 84k tps.

It's been applied to widly different CPUs over the years. I guess that was a single socket server? You're much more likely to see significant problems on a multi node NUMA servers where the penalties for cache misses/false sharing are a magnitude or three higher. > Can someone test these patches on an AMD CPU and see if you see a > difference? Thanks. I don't think you'll see a bigger difference there.
