Jeff,

Thanks for your response, I did turn the fsync off, no performance
improvement.

Since the application is a network monring program, data is not critical
for us.

By "tuning" fsync, what do you mean? Did you turn it off?

If you turned fsync off, that could compromise your data in case of any
kind of crash or power failure. However, if you turn fsync off you
should much higher TPS on pgbench than you're getting.

Does your disk controller have battery-backed writeback cache? How much?

Well, chances are PostgreSQL is waiting for fsync, which means you do
have an I/O bottleneck (however, you're not using all of your I/O
bandwidth, most likely).
