I tried to repeat the DBT-2 runs with the "oldestxmin refresh" patch,

behaved very differently than it did back in March.
I rerun the a shorter 1h test with CVS head from May 20th, and March 6th
(which is when I ran the earlier tests), and something has clearly been
changed between those dates that affects the test. Test run 248 is with
CVS checkout from May 20th, and 249 is from March 6th:
May 20th is not quite my idea of "HEAD" ;-). It might be worth checking
current code before investing any think-time on this.
:) Yeah, I did run it with real head at first. I suspected the
n_live_tuples calculations, and that's why I ran it again with a
checkout from May 20th.
But having said
that, it looks a bit like a planner problem --- if I'm reading the
graphs correctly, I/O wait time goes through the roof, suggesting a
change to a much less efficient plan.
I'll do a "binary search" with a checkouts from different dates runs to
pin it down.
