In this blogpost, I shared two scripts: one was to dynamically configure PostgreSQL to the specs of the machine it's running on (based on three different "usage patterns": web-based backend, online transaction processing, and data warehousing/business intelligence), and the other script was a very basic startup/init script for PostgreSQL. In the init script I put a few new lines (new to me, at least), so I figured I'd explain those.

First off, the lines in question:...

sometimes ago, i read an ingeneer, so loving linux system like, as i can read from him.
He complained about the fact linux is not ready for desktop.
And, reading the title, i was offusced by it, but reading more carrefully, I fall in the same conclusion : linux is not ready for desktop, like we see for PC released with windows.

1 day downtime

Just got online after 1-day downtime.
It's all because of me.

PostgreSQL reconfigure script

Posted 02-10-2010 at 10:54 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated 03-04-2011 at 10:42 AM by rocket357 (Added Version changelog to script)

UPDATE: Script has been revised and is available here

The following script is something I've written up to ease my duties as the PostgreSQL DBA for a large hosting company. It configures PostgreSQL according to whack-a-mole, and it auto-detects various resources such as system RAM, shared memory settings, etc...

The script currently supports Linux and OpenBSD (FreeBSD coming soon!).
