More Memory, More Problems

Sometimes configuring a database at scale can seem like a dark art. While the Postgres documentation is fantastic, there are no hard-and-fast rules for tuning given the diversity of workloads out there and much of what we learned came from sparse references and experimentation. We hope that compiling our findings will help future engineers get ahead of the challenges we faced — if you want to skip the narrative, feel free to jump ahead for a summary of our findings.

Sisu (2022)

When an ex-soldier who discovers gold in the Lapland wilderness tries to take the loot into the city, Nazi soldiers led by a brutal SS officer battle him.

In the evening I watched Sisu. I liked the movie and give it a 7 out of 10.
