No, not more than the vmstat output in my initial mail: http://nopaste.narf.at/show/25531/ <http://nopaste.narf.at/show/25531/>. And those values are quite dependent on the environment you’re running, so I find them not very interesting to compare.

You can easily reproduce the behaviour by running pgpool with a few hundred to thousands of pgpool children and a rate of 50-100 new connections per second.
