Tuning PostgreSQL Database Parameters to Optimize Performance


Out of the box, the default PostgreSQL configuration is not tuned for any particular workload. It is primarily the responsibility of the database administrator or developer to tune PostgreSQL according to their system’s workload. If queries perform full table scans where an index could be used or perform heavy joins or expensive aggregate operations, then the system can still perform poorly even if the database parameters are tuned.
