Vacuum did complain about that but still got:

  609 postgres  15   0  537m 105m  676 S 21.5  1.4   1:15.00 postgres:
autovacuum launcher process
  610 postgres  15   0  241m  88m  500 S 20.5  1.1   1:50.87 postgres:
stats collector process

That autovacuum working hole time, shoudn't be run only when db needs ?
