I am running an update-query to benchmark various databases; the postgres version is,
 
UPDATE user_account SET last_name = 'abc'
WHERE user_account_id IN (SELECT user_account_id FROM commercial_entity, commercial_service WHERE yw_account_id IS NULL
AND commercial_entity.commercial_entity_id = commercial_service.commercial_entity_id);
 
 
The inner query (the select), run by itself, takes about a second. Add the outer query (the update-portion), and the query dies. The machine has been vacuum-analzyed. Here is the explain-analyze:
 
benchtest=# EXPLAIN ANALYZE UPDATE user_account SET last_name = 'abc'
benchtest-# WHERE user_account_id IN (SELECT user_account_id FROM commercial_entity, commercial_service WHERE yw_account_id IS NULL
benchtest(# AND commercial_entity.commercial_entity_id = commercial_service.commercial_entity_id);
 Seq Scan on user_account  (cost=0.00..813608944.88 rows=36242 width=718) (actual time=15696258.98..16311130.29 rows=3075 loops=1)   Filter: (subplan)
   SubPlan

           ->  Merge Join  (cost=0.00..11224.77 rows=86952 width=36) (actual time=0.21..1845.13 rows=85158 loops=1)
                 Merge Cond: ("outer".commercial_entity_id = "inner".commercial_entity_id)
                 ->  Index Scan using commercial_entity_pkey on commercial_entity  (cost=0.00..6787.27 rows=77862 width=24) (actual time=0.06..469.56 rows=78132 loops=1)
                       Filter: (yw_account_id IS NULL)
                 ->  Index Scan using comm_serv_comm_ent_id_i on commercial_service  (cost=0.00..2952.42 rows=88038 width=12) (actual time=0.03..444.80 rows=88038 loops=1)

Here are the relevant parts of the schema:

Here is the postgres.conf (or the variables that are not commented out):
 
tcpip_socket = true
max_connections = 500
shared_buffers = 32768          # min max_connections*2 or 16, 8KB each
wal_buffers = 128               # min 4, typically 8KB each
sort_mem = 4096                 # min 64, size in KB
effective_cache_size = 50000    # typically 8KB each
 
Is it a problem with "IN"?
