PostgreSQL 9.3 benchmarks

Every 6-8 months or so, someone benchmarks PostgreSQL on FreeBSD, usually
on massively-multi-core machines (32+ cores/threads).  And those graphs
almost always show increases in performance with each release of FreeBSD
(default install), and larger increases with small changes to sysctls and
PostgreSQL config.

Searching through the archives for the -stable and/or -current mailing
lists should pull up the configuration details.

​This Google search shows several threads from 2011, 2012, and 2013 on this
subject (including graphs comparing FreeBSD, DragonflyBSD, and Linux):
