I agree. You definitely want to take a baseline measurement and record
the existing settings before fiddling with the knobs and the blinking
lights. Another thing to look at is the statistics and buffer usage
after a couple of _days_. When I reran a report this morning after 3 1/2
days of uptime, it was only using 33.87MB of the 200 I had specified for
it. If I were to be using a system with far less than the 8GB I have
now, I may want to look at adjusting the settings downward to what it
actually being used. And I admit, I bumped that particular value up
that high over three years ago when I was getting stuttering, slow
queries and other "oddness". The system has been through upgrades since
then. And while it doesn't have the the DB on a SSD, it is probably a
prudent exercise to go back to the defaults and review system behavior.
WAF providing, of course.
