Yes, that would be great. Actually I prefer rules of thumb and examples
for each extreme. If possible a little note WHY the parameter should be
tweaked, and what effects it will have. For example, more note's like
Josh's below would be a big help...
So, maybe just a note on which parameters to increase if you have more
RAM/CPU/I/O bandwidth in the big server example?
Yes. Take sort_mem for example:
The basic idea is:
More RAM => more sort_mem
More concurrent queries => less sort_mem
Larger data sets => more sort_mem
Lots of grouped aggregates => more sort_mem
