This Month's Talk


Please note that our meeting location has changed. See below for details.

A one hour presentation on the essentials on the optimization of
PostgreSQL. The talk focuses on hardware, operating system and
configuration for the database. Although performance optimization is a
life long maintenance for any application, this presentation will allow
you to hit the ground running. Specific topics covered are memory
configuration, RAID, partitioning, and application specific changes that
can be made to help efficiency.

Due to all of the shopping around us there is plenty of parking available
in garages, but it can be hard to find street parking in the evening.

Attendees will need to wait near the elevators in the lobby and a Marchex
employee will provide access to the 18th floor where the meeting room is
located. If no one shows up to let you in, call (425) 533-2964 to let them
know you're in the lobby.

See you there!

Andrew B. Sweger -- The great thing about multitasking is that several
                                things can go wrong at once.
