Sample text

Remember, if there was an eternal law, there would be no setting, but some autotuning magic. However, a contrib module called pg_buffercache can give some insights into what is in cache at the moment. It can be used as a basis to get started on understanding what is going on inside the PostgreSQL shared buffer. conf, shown as follows: shared_buffers = 4GB In our example, shared buffers have been set to 4GB. A database restart is needed to activate the new value. 4, some changes were introduced.

PostgreSQL switches back to the more efficient plan. 327 ms (6 rows) In our example, PostgreSQL can sort the entire dataset in memory. Earlier, we had to perform a so-called "external sort Disk", which is way slower because temporary results have to be written to disk. The work_mem command is used for some other operations as well. However, sorting and aggregation are the most common use cases. Keep in mind that work_mem should not be abused, and work_mem can be allocated to every sorting or grouping operation.

The main advantage of the B-trees is that they can handle concurrency very nicely. It is possible that hundreds or thousands of concurrent users modify the tree at the same time. Unfortunately, there is not enough room in this book to explain precisely how this works. The two most important issues of this tree are the facts that I/O is done in 8,000 chunks and that the tree is actually a sorted structure. This allows PostgreSQL to apply a ton of optimizations. Providing a sorted order As we stated before, a B-tree provides the system with sorted output.
