I realized that inserts into foreign tables are only done row by row.
Consider copying data from one local table to a foreign table with
INSERT INTO foreign_table(a,b,c) SELECT a,b,c FROM local_table;
When the foreign server is for example in another datacenter with long latency,
this as an enormous performance trade off.
I am adding Fujita-san in the loop here, he is
quite involved with postgres_fdw these days so perhaps he has some
input to offer.
Honestly, I didn't have any idea for executing such an insert
efficiently, but I was thinking to execute an insert into a foreign
table efficiently, by sending the whole insert to the remote server, if
possible. For example, if the insert is of the form:
INSERT INTO foreign_table(a,b,c) VALUES (1, 2, 3), (4, 5, 6) or
INSERT INTO foreign_table(a,b,c) SELECT a,b,c FROM foreign_table2
where foreign_table and foreign_table2 belong to the same foreign
server, then we could send the whole insert to the remote server.
Wouldn't that make sense?
