Well, if the load is a lot of short writing transactions then you'd
expect the throughput to depend on how fast stuff can be pushed down to
WAL. What have you got wal_buffers set to? Are you using a commit
delay? What's the I/O system anyway (any BB write cache on the WAL
disk?) and what wal sync method are you using?
While I'm asking questions, exactly what were the data columns you
presented? Txn/User doesn't make much sense to me, and I'm not sure
what "response time" you were measuring either.
