Well I turned on log_min_duration_statement, set up auto_explain,
pg_stat_statements, pgrowlocks, pg_buffercache, wrote some monitoring
queries and started to wait when the situation repeats.

Today it happens! Situation was absolutely the same as I described in
my previous letter. One more thing I noticed about CPU user-time this
time is that after connections count gets close to pgbouncer threshold
it decreased from ~800 to ~10 very fast.

Log monitoring shows me that query plans were the same as usual (thanx

I reset pg_stat_statements and few minutes later did select from it. I
noticed that slowest queries was on tables with high number of updates
(but isn't it usual?).

I tried to get locks with this queries

    (SELECT count(*) FROM pgrowlocks(schemaname || '.' || t.tablename)) AS locks
FROM pg_tables t
WHERE schemaname = 'public'

SELECT * FROM pgrowlocks('public.person_online');

but nothing was returned.

Here is portions of vmstat and iostat results http://pastie.org/701326

This time situation was saved by PG restart to. Obviously all I
provided tells almost nothing and I'm very confused with it. So please
tell me what else could I do to get more info?

I do have but this results are good and the same as when nothing has
happened when everything is allright.
