Hello everyone,
I have a base to give Postgress hosted on a server Dedicate
This database am receiving an many connections each day
There are times to spit comics
I commcé make a little research and using the iostat command, I got some results
I'd make sure of the meaning of words% idle, and see if you have an analysis of these results
thank you
