Subject Re: Ignite Load Performance when memory exhausted
Date Thu, 25 Jun 2020 10:04:01 GMT

Until you got this message, you did not need to catch up with disk (except
for WAL writing, maybe), but once you see it, good days are over and you
need to do checkpoints with all pages which were updated recently.

There are things to tune here, but don't expect miracles.
