With transparent huge pages maybe it would be automatic. Seems 9.4 is able to handle it but it must be globally enabled using sysctl.

#2

Updated by Marc Dequènes 3 months ago

It seems to be clear we should disable transparent huge pages for all workloads:

Also recommended by PG doc.

Setting huge pages manually and adapting over time might be a pain though.
