I suspect his slowness comes from not running analyze when it would be
time to start using indexes for fk checks - if you run analyze on an
empty table and then do 10000 inserts, then all these will run their
checks using seqscan, as this is the fastest way to do it on an empty
table ;)

even this should not be too crippling.

I 0nce did some testing for insert performance and got about 9000
inserts/sec on 4 CPU Xeon with 2GB ram and RAID-5 (likely with battery
backed cache).

This 9000 dropped to ~250 when I added a primary key index (to a
60.000.000 record table, so that the pk index fit only partly in
memory), all this with separate transactions, but with many clients
running concurrently. (btw., the clients were not java/JDBC but

With just one client you are usually stuck to 1 trx/disk revolution, at
least with no battery-backed write cache.

even 250/sec should insert 10000 in 40 sec.
