Alexey,

The issue is not that 8GB is the maximum. You *can* set it higher. What I'm saying, and I'm not alone in this, is that
settingit higher can actually decrease performance for various reasons. Setting it to 25% of memory on a system with
512GBof RAM for instance, would be tantamount to disaster. A checkpoint with a setting that high could overwhelm pretty
muchany disk controller and end up  completely ruining DB performance. And that's just *one* of the drawbacks.
