Specifies a fraction of the table size to add to autovacuum_analyze_threshold when deciding whether to trigger an ANALYZE. The default is 0.1 (10% of table size). This parameter can only be set in the postgresql.conf file or on the server command line; but the setting can be overridden for individual tables by changing table storage parameters.


This setting should be optimal for most databases. However, very large tables (1m rows or more) in which rows are added in a skewed fashion may need to be autoanalyzed at a lower percentage, such as 5% or even 1%.
