Everything Everywhere All at Once: PostgreSQL configuration guide
Room: Room 3
Configuring a database is always a challenge, because it requires knowledge of the database itself and the load one expects it to handle. There is surprisingly a lot of various trades-off, some of which have to be established empirically.
In this talk we will try to take a step back and look at this from a different angle. Could we divide all the possible ways of configuring Postgres into separate categories? What would be their properties, and how does it affect the final challenge, is it going to be easier to configure a database? How the database developers point of view impacts this question?
