Let's go with 8.2.5 on the same server (-s 100 / 16 clients / 50k
transactions per client / only read using -S option):
64MB: 33814 tps
512MB: 35833 tps
1024MB: 36986 tps
It's more consistent with what I expected.

I used PGDG RPMs compiled by Devrim for 8.2.5 and the ones I compiled
myself for 8.3b4 (based on the src.rpm of Devrim). I just asked Devrim
to build a set of x86_64 RPMs for 8.3b4 to see if it's not a
compilation problem (they were compiled on a brand new box freshly
installed so it would be a bit surprising but I want to be sure). He's
kindly uploading them right now so I'll work on new tests using his

I'll keep you informed of the results.
