No, I'm not recommending a higher value, but just removing the doubtful sentences of 512MB upper limit. The advantage is that eliminating this sentence will make a chance for users to try best setting.

Thank you, I'll try the read-write test with these settings on the weekend, when my PC is available. I understood that your intention is to avoid being affected by checkpointing and WAL segment creation.
