So I'd expect a correlation of nearly 1. Why do your statistics show
a value of -0.479749? A negative correlation is a sign of descending
sort order, and correlation values closer to 0 indicate poor
correspondence between column values and tuple positions.
Could this be the effect of initial data loading? Are there any
updates or deletions in your traffic table?

Oops, these should have been single quotes. It's too hot here these

Personally I would set them to lower values, but if you have good

This is definitely too low. With 512MB or more I tend to set this to
ca. 80% of available RAM. Use top and free to find hints for good
