I haven't modified any of the setting. I did try changing shmmax from

/usr/bin/postmaster -o \"-i -N 128 -B 256\" start  > /dev/null 2>&1" <
/dev/null


Lol.. -B 256 does not mean 256MB of buffers. It means 2MB of buffers. Each buffer is of 8K. Try upping it to a 1000 or 2000

I haven't modified postgresql.conf yet but am going through a book on performance tuning the server. If you can provide any suggestions or help as I am new to postgres it would be appreciated.
