I've developed a solution for my school that will use PostgreSQL as our 
backend. I'm pleased with the performance, but so far we've only done 
testing in small groups. We go live with the system fairly soon, but 
I'm not terribly familiar with the postgresql.conf file. I was 
wondering what advice you might have for my particular configuration. 
I'll be running on a dual 2 GHz G5 XServe with 1 GB RAM. I could have 
upwards of 300 people accessing the server at any given time, although 
the load will usually be closer to 100. Most people will be creating 
and updating records. I guess I'm wondering most about how high I 
should set max_connections, shared_buffers, etc. They'll be using a 
client application, not a web-based system. Thanks in advance for any 
help you can provide.
