You've heard that PostgreSQL is the highest-performance transactional open source database, but you're not seeing it on YOUR server. In fact, your PostgreSQL application is kind of poky. What should you do? While doing advanced performance engineering for really high-end systems takes years to learn, you can learn the basics to solve performance issues for 80% of PostgreSQL installations in less than an hour. In this session, you will learn: -- The parts of database application performance -- The performance setup procedure -- Basic troubleshooting tools -- The 13 postgresql.conf settings you need to know -- Where to look for more information.
