I received this message after running vacuum on a database.

NOTICE:  number of page slots needed (27296) exceeds max_fsm_pages
(20000)
HINT:  Consider increasing the configuration parameter "max_fsm_pages"
to a value over 27296.

The documentation for 8.1 sates:
This setting must be more than 16 * max_fsm_relations. The default is
20000. This option can only be set at server start.

Do I increase max_fsm_pages or max_fsm_relations, or both.
Does "only be set at server start" mean to alter the settings in
postgresql.conf and then restart the postmaster?
