        Try set enable_seqscan = off; set enable_indexscan = on; to 
force the planner to use one of the indexes. Analyze the queries from 
your application and see what are the most used columns in WHERE clauses 
and recreate the indexes. select count(*) from items where channel < 
5000; will never use any of the current indexes because none matches 
your WHERE clause (channel appears now only in multicolumn indexes).
