Re: [PERFORM] Slow updates, poor IO

Ah yess... actually I can get the Kingston stuff locally.
However at the moment I'm happily married and want to keep it that way!

Everything is in pairs too. Actually its a lot cheaper than when it first came out, but still
a lot more than your corner shop DDR-2 stuff.

Ahh bugger, I've just trashed my test setup. I've settled on  64Mb shared memory since I've only got 1Gb or RAM and the system impact of 256M is severe. Also it uses FB-DIMMS which cost arm+leg+first born  Fully buffered memory there is $56.99 for a 1 Gig stick.  That's hardly an arm and a leg.  Considering many pgsql DBAs make that in 1 to 3 hours, it's not much at all really.  A lot cheaper than pulling your hair out trying to make a db server run on 1 Gig.
