(you'll get more and better answers on pgsql-general, pgeu-general is

Hmm, I just did a fresh build and install of 9.1, and the installation 
seems to be about 20MB. Add to that the data directory created with 
initdb, which seems to be about 34MB. Once you start using the database, 
you'll quickly create at least a few more WAL files, which are 16MB 
each. So I'd say that 128MB is pretty much the minimum size of a working 
PostgreSQL installation including the database. But you'll really want 
to have some space for the data itself, and some headroom, so something 
like 256MB would be more realistic.

The size of the binaries will depend on architecture and compilation 
options, of course. I got the 20MB figure on x86_64, if the embedded 
device uses 32-bit x86 or arm, the binaries will likely be somewhat smaller.

I'm not sure I understand the question, but the number of simultaneous 
connections can be configured with the max_connections parameter. How 
much real work those connections can do concurrently depends on the
