   If to use virtually all memory to shared memory, you have concurrency
others process of the SO. Generally webserver is concurrency with
PostgreSQL in Shared Memory, if possible use in other server.

   To initial point, recommends to use 25-40% to shared memory and
shared_buffers with value initial 25%.
