With those settings, be prepared to go to your last known good
backup if the OS or hardware crashes.
Each of your seven autovacuum processes can be using that, for 2.1GB
in autovacuum work space.
If you had all connections busy, using temp tables and doing sorts
or hash tables, you could hit 5GB or more in space for that. On top
of the shared_buffers and maintenance work memory, you could hit 8GB
or more in RAM usage pretty easily. You might want to consider a
connection pool to allow the 250 client connections to be limited to
a pool of 20 or 30 database connections on the server side.
Are you using the INET data type? There is a bug introduced in
9.1.2 which can leak memory when using that type. If that's your
problem, you might want to fall back to 9.1.1 and/or install 9.1.3
as soon as it becomes available.
