I'm in the fortunate position of having a newly built database server that's pre-production. I'm about to run it through the ringer with some simulations of business data and logic, but I wanted to post the results of some preliminary pgbench marking.


To me, it looks like basic transactional performance is modestly improved at 8.0 across a variety of metrics. I think this bodes well for more realistic loads, but I'll be curious to see the results of some of the simulations.

I've still got a little bit of preparatory time with this box, so I can continue to do some experimentation.

I'd be curious to see whether these numbers meet developer expectations and to see whether the developer and user community have insight into other pgbench options that would be useful to see.
