Seth,

My system: RH9, PG 7.3.4, IDE, 1 gig RAM, celeron 1.7

Size of table: 16212 rows
Params: shared_buffers = 128, effective_cache_size = 8192


Just in case, the "shared_buffers" value looks a bit far too small for your system. I think you should raise it to at least 1024, or so.

Effective cache size could be (at least) doubled, too ==> this might
help forcing the index use.

Thanks! I'm just beginning to play with these numbers. I'll definitely try them out.


I can't wait to try out the script that will help set these parameters! :)

Seth
