Thank you for testing.

Yes, influence seems to be low.  But nevertheless it's important to insure
that there is no regression here.
Despite pg_prewarm'ing and running tests 300s, there is still significant
For instance, with clients count = 80:
 * pgxact-result-2.txt – 474704
 * pgxact-results.txt – 574844
Could some background processes influence the tests?  Or could it be
another virtual machine?
Also, I wonder why I can't see this variation on the graphs.
Another issue with graphs is that we can't see details of read and write
TPS variation on the same scale, because write TPS values are too low.  I
think you should draw write benchmark on the separate graph.
