Does Tune Postgresql work with v10 after upgrade?

Postby ethanrox » Tue Nov 23, 2021 4:34 pm

Hello,

I saw https://www.pokertracker.com/guides/PT4/databases/how-to-manually-update-postgresql-to-v10 that we can use v10 v postgresql server.
Are the newer versions 4.15.34+ using a new "Tune PostgreSQL" logic? I remember reading that although 9.6 was the latest supported version, only 9.3 had the tuning logic - EDIT - found link:
https://www.pokertracker.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=98754&p=356583&hilit=performance+tuning#p356583
"If you are using PostgreSL v9.3 then you can tune it but that isn't currently supported with later versions of PostgreSQL so later versions would require manual tuning. "
Is this still applicable?

Yes that is still the case. I will remind the development team about this and you can open a Support Ticket to be notified of any update.

Great, thanks.
Maybe also describe what the tuning actually does in terms of changes to postgres configuration.

I don't know the specifics of the changes but the automatic tuning in PokerTracker 4 could adjust any of these settings in the postgresql.conf file based on system specifications such as available RAM:

'shared_buffers'
'work_mem'
'wal_buffers'
'maintenance_work_mem'
'effective_cache_size'
'checkpoint_segments'
'random_page_cost'


You can see what each of those settings does here.

Thanks.
So, PT4 modifies the postgresql.conf for those settings for the tuning.
Any idea what the values for 9.3 were?

Settings are system specific so there isn't a single set of values. If you want to see what the v9.3 tuning does for your system you can install a temporary second instance of PostgreSQL, run the tuning in PokerTracker 4 when connected to it and then review the changes that were made in the postgresql.conf file (they will all be commented).

Thanks for the advice!
