We had a really *big* scalability problem with a quad Xeon MP 2.2 and
PostgreSQL 7.4. The problem is mostly gone since we upgraded to 8.1 a
year ago.

Woodcrest seems to perform really well with PostgreSQL according to
what I can read on the Internet so we will probably change the server
for a dual Woodcrest in a few months.
