PostgreSQL Limits for 64GB

DigitalOcean Managed PostgreSQL Database

I have a managed PostgreSQL database with 64GB of RAM. On DigitalOcean’s documentation site it has always been said that the connection limit for it is 1597. But when creating the database, the limit is only 997.
Support informs me that in fact, the limit is only 997 and that the documentation is wrong (it is never fixed then).

What is the actual correct limit for a 64GB RAM database?!

Hi @ElTommy,

For 64GB RAM, the actual connection limit is 997; The connection limit value in the documentation will be corrected soon.
