As others said, you need to stat how many concurrent clients are working 
on the database and also the number of logical CPUs (CPU cores, 
hyperthreading) are present in the machine. So far, as a rule of thumb, 
if you have more concurrent active connections (i.e. doing queries, not 
idling), you will experience a sharp decline in performance if this 
number exceeds the number of logical CPUs in the machine.
