You'll probably want a lot of shared memory, but you can set that using
If you're on a multi-cpu system, you'll want SMP.
If you're on a hyperthreading machine, you'll have to choose whether you
want that on or off (don't know what's best for PostgreSQL).
If you're on a 32-bit platform with lots of RAM, you may need PAE.
Other than that, I really wouldn't know.
What kind of kernel options do you expect to have any impact on database
You could build a couple of different kernels with different configs and
see what works best for you. I suppose hyper-threading or not and PAE or
not are the best candidates for experimentation.
I know there're quite a few FreeBSD users among the people here and I've
always kinda disliked system administration, so I suspect I'm not the
best candidate for answering your question :P
