Forum OpenACS Development: Response to What is the OpenACS 4 platform?

Posted by Don Baccus on
Some data on the performance of PG 7.1 with the default 8KB blocksize vs. a larger blocksize would be interesting to have, Pascal.  I've not played with this at all.  I would think a larger blocksize would be better on larger systems and a smaller blocksize on smaller systems but that is nothing but intuition speaking.

You can emulate a smaller system on a larger box by varying the "-B" parameter given the postmaster along with changing the blocksize and recompiling PG.
