btw - the "hashjoin is bad" was more or less based on the observation

[ shrug... ] Two out of the three functions you mentioned are not used
by hash join, and anyway the other plan probably has a comparable
execution density in sort-related functions; does that make it bad?
hmm sorry for that - I should have checked the source before I made that
It's possible that the large time for ExecScanHashBucket has something
to do with skewed usage of the hash buckets due to an unfortunate data
distribution, but that's theorizing far in advance of the data.
has preliminary data of the dbt3/scaling 10 run I did which seems to
imply we have at least 4 queries in there that take an excessive amount
of time (query 5 is the one I started the complaint with).
However those results have to be taken with a graint of salt since there
is an appearant bug in the dbt3 code which seems to rely on
add_missing_from=on (as can be seen in some of the errorlogs of the
database) and towards the end of the throughput run I did some of the
explain analyzes for the report (those are the small 100% spikes in the
graph due to the box using the second CPU to run them).
I will redo those tests later this week though ...
