It's in the directions for dbt2, though I haven't found the specific function(s) that requires it at this point -- can't quite run it on my system yet for various reasons. > > Any chance the default could be bumped for the 7.4 release? > > Not without evidence that it doesn't cause performance penalties. > ISTM we have been through this discussion recently, and concluded > that 32 was the place to set it. Yes, I was digging through that discussion. The test used shows a 4% difference between 32 and 64. do 100 times select 2+2+2+2+2+2+ ... iterated 9901 times #define INDEX_MAX_KEYS 16, 32, 64, & 128 #define FUNC_MAX_ARGS INDEX_MAX_KEYS make all make install initdb The results were as follows: INDEX_MAX_KEYS 16 32 64 128 -----+-------+------+-------- Time in seconds 48 49 51 55 -- Rod Taylor <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> PGP Key: http://www.rbt.ca/rbtpub.asc
