In the performance case the machine was running RedHat AS 2.1.  I have posted the 
database schema at (obtained from pg_dump -s):

The time to run all the stats procedures dropped through the floor.  
refresh_hourly_iud, adl_hourly_iud, rebuild_daily_total etc.  There is a python script 
that calls the proc once for each hour or day.  When running the historical calc job 
for a 7 day period back, it would crawl on 7.3.3.  We started benching the drive array 
and found other issues with the system in the mean time (like the drive array was 
giving us 10MB/sec write speed - the guy who set it up did not enable write to cache). 
 Once it was reconfigured the DB performance did not improve much (bonnie++ was used 
to verify the RAID array speed).
