Out of the box, PostgreSQL is configured to run on very small systems like a Raspberry Pi, but people do not run large scale enterprise applications on a Raspberry Pi. There are many knobs and switches to tune PostgreSQL for your workload, but which ones make a difference. In this talk, we will discuss those knobs and switches on the operating system and the postgresql.conf file that affects performance. We will also dig into tuning a query and discuss PostgreSQL explain plans and give you the base line tools necessary to start tuning your application on PostgreSQL.
