Rod, you improved my query last week (thank you very much) but I'm not sure
why but my performance is getting worse.  I think I know what happened, when
I did my load testing I created data that all had the same date, so sorting
on the date was very fast.  But now I've been running the system for a few
weeks I've got a range of dates and now the sort is very costly.  I'm
curious if it's possible to optimize this with an index?  I've tried
creating some indexes but they're never used.

 Total runtime: 16713.25 msec
(18 rows)

As you can see it takes 16 seconds to return only 18 rows.  The
monitorstatusx table has over 7 million rows, and for each monitor status
there's one row in each of the monitorstatusitemx and the join tables.  So I
think the size of the database is just too high for this sort.  I run my
reports offline, but what I'm finding is that at 16 seconds per report, the
reports aren't finished by morning.  My postgresql.conf is attached in case
I have it configured incorrectly.
