I'm not the difference was a random noise, because running multiple set of three runs of pgbench (huge_pages = on, off, on, off, on...) produced similar results. But I expected a bit greater improvement, say, +10%. There may be better benchmark model where the large page stands out, but I think pgbench is not so bad because its random data access would cause TLB cache misses. > I saw your recent post proposing to remove the sentence about the 512MB > effective limit and I wondered why you didn't go to larger sizes with a > larger database and more run time.

Yes, I could have gone to 8GB of shared_buffers because my PC has 16GB of RAM, but I felt the number of variations was sufficient. Anyway, positive comments on benchmarking would be appreciated.
