I have a big function that includes many truncates on different tables. In
the documentation is is written that truncates creates a new file and
resign the old filenode to the new filenode and the old file (old data of
the table) is deleted in commit.

In order to execute my function I run psql -d 'aa' -U 'bb' -C "select

I have a few questions about it ?

1.When I start the function, it means that the whole function is one big
transaction right ?
2..Because the truncates I preform are part of a transaction it means that
only at the end of the transaction that space will be freed ? Which mean
only when the function is finished?
3..Does running vacuum at the end of the function on the tables that were
truncated and then populated with data will have any impact or is it better
just to analyze them ?
