SYNOPSISpgtune [ options ] -i $PGDATA/postgresql.conf -o $PGDATA/postgresql.conf.pgtune
DESCRIPTIONpgtune takes the wimpy default postgresql.conf and expands the database server to be as powerful as the hardware it's being deployed on.
pgtune works by taking an existing postgresql.conf file as an input, making changes to it based on the amount of RAM in your server and suggested workload, and output a new file.
