I did a quick pgbench write tests for unlogged tables at 88 clients as it
had the peak performance from previous test. There is big jump in TPS due
to clog changes.
clients BASE ONLY CLOG CHANGES % Increase ONLY SAVE SNAPSHOT % Increase CLOG
CHANGES + SAVE SNAPSHOT % Increase
88 36055.425005 52796.618434 46.4318294034 37728.004118 4.6389111008
Clients + WITH INCREASE IN CLOG BUFFER % increase
88 58217.924138 61.4678626862
I will continue to benchmark above tests with much wider range of clients.
