Yeah. Unfortunately in AWS RDS the parameter group settings accept input only in stricter format, so shared_buffers requires an integer value in KiB.

Sorry, this is dumb, but I wanted to double check that I'm doing the shared_buffers calc correctly given it's in 8kb blocks (block_size is set to 8192).

Want 24GB, which I think is 25165824 KiB so divided by 8 we get 3145728.

Do I have this correct? Usually can test these but wanted to run it by someone before having to restart the server.

Is there some calc web service out there that idiots such as myself can use for this?

"If this value is specified without units, it is taken as blocks,"

My interpretation of this (and what I do in my postgresql.conf file, without error) is to use a unit name, as such:
shared_buffers = 24GB
