Hmmm, during peak time these values have no influence to perfomance at all.
:( The values help to decrease the load during "not-so-busy" times, but
during peak times the load is still arround 12-20. This is absolutly
inacceptable for me.

What I dont understand about it, is that the DB is not THAT big. The tables
are arround 10.000-30.000 rows and there are only about 6 tables. They all
use indexes where needed and everything is vacuumed up to 8 times a day. But
the load is not affected by it. I can't seem to find "what" is pressing the

Does query optimization help a lot or does it only affect the performance in
a little manner? Most queries look for rows with a specific primary id and
return parts/the whole row.

Any optimizations hints?
