How do we go about scheduling tests with the OSDL folks? If they could
do 10 runs with buffers between 1k and 500k it would help us get a broad
view of the situation.

Yes. We'll need to. However, I'd like to wait until we're officially in Beta. I'll be seeing the OSDL folks in person (PostgreSQL+OSDL BOF at Linux World Expo!!) in a couple of weeks.

Don't forget to add that ARC needs some time actually to let the algorithm adjust the queue sizes and populate the cache according to the access pattern. You can't start a virgin postmaster and then slam on the accellerator of your test application by launching 500 concurrent clients out of the blue and expect that it starts off airborne.
