max_connections = 160 shared_buffers = 2048 [Total = 2.5 Gb.] sort_mem = 8192 [Total = 1280 Mb.] vacuum_mem = 16384 effective_cache_size = 128897 [= 1007 Mb. = 1 Gb. ] Will it be more suitable for my server than before?

I would keep shared_buffers in the 10000->20000 range, as this is
allocated *once* into shared memory, so only uses 80->160 Mb in *total*.

The lower sort_mem will help reduce memory pressure (as this is
allocated for every backend connection) and this will help performance -
*unless* you have lots of queries that need to sort large datasets. If
so, then these will hammer your i/o subsystem, possibly canceling any
gain from freeing up more memory. So there is a need to understand what
sort of workload you have!

best wishes
