Postgres version is 9.1.4 (lastest)
Every day the table has about 7 millions of new rows.
The table hold the data for 60 days, so approx. the total rows must be
around 420 millions.
Every night a delete process run, and remove rows older than 60 days.
So, the space used by postgres should not be increase drastically because
every day arrive 7 millions of rows but also same quantity is deleted but my
disk get out of space every 4 months.
I must copy tables outside the server, delete local table and create it
again, after this process I got again space for about 4 months.
Maybe is a wrong autovacuum config, but is really complicate to understand
what values are correct to avoid performance penalty but to keep table in
I think that autovacuum configuration should have some like "auto-config"
that recalculate every day which is the best configuration for the server

Deleting a high percentage of the rows should cause autovacuum to deal with
the table the next time it wakes up, so an explicit VACUUM ANALYZE shouldn't

How are you measuring the data and how are you measuring the space?
And what version of PostgreSQL is this?
