I'm consolidating multiple Linux boxes running Postgres into one box.

Given the way Postgres handles resource utilization, would one single server service handling all the databases provide a much better performance than multiple server services (each one listening to different IP:port) running on the same host?

  • You don't provide any stats. Include DB size, RAM amount, other serivces running, etc... Then you might get a real answer. – Mike Shultz Jul 24 '14 at 16:38
