Schedule - PGConf.EU 2014

Performance Archaeology

Date: 2014-10-22
Time: 12:10–13:00
Room: Renacimiento I
Level: Intermediate

I've started with PostgreSQL 10+ years ago, and I've repeatedly asked myself how much has the performance changes since then. But it's quite difficult to judge, because the improvements are mostly incremental, the hardware and applications change etc. So let's do some basic benchmarks (e.g. pgbench) on releases since 7.4, and compare the results. You will not learn about how to use cool new features during this talk, but hopefully you'll learn how far we got in the past decade.
