How many of those 300 max connections do you generally use? If you've
always used a handful, or you've used more but they weren't memory
hungry then you've been lucky.
work_mem is how much memory postgresql can allocate PER sort or hash
type operation. Each connection can do that more than once. A
complex query can do it dozens of times. Can you see that going from
20 to 200 connections and increasing complexity can result in memory
usage going from a few megabytes to something like 200 connections *
100Megabytes per sort * 3 sorts = 60Gigabytes.

Just because you've been walking around with a gun pointing at your
head without it going off does not mean walking around with a gun
pointing at your head is a good idea.
