Funny you say this: Upcoming in 1.3.6 we released autotuning out of the
box. I've known for a long time tuning of threads and memory has been a
pain point for users and admins.
I rewrote out platform memory detection code to be accurate with regard
to hardware, rlimits and cgroups, and made autotuning the default. You
can read more here:
It also includes thread autotuning :) So there is no need for a table,
the server will scale up and down based on your hardware and limits
In the future we hope to add more improvements in the parallel
performance of threads in the server, so hopefully you should see
greater benefits in the future too from this type of change,
Hope that helps,
