Hi Renier, you'll have to be bit more specific regarding the setup there?

1) What version of postgres?
2)  What type of application will be using it? Website/intranet site/custom
app ect?
3) How many connections are we talking here?
4) Maybe post your current config files to the web somewhere, where people
can have a look?

More information you can give, the easier people can help you guys?
