Should I be concerned that my vacuum process has taken upwards of 100 +
minutes to complete?  I dropped all indexes before starting and also
increased the vacuum_mem before starting.
Looking at the output below, it appears that a vacuum full hasn't been done
on this table for quite sometime.  Would I be better off exporting the data
vacuuming the table and reimporting the data?  I cannot drop the table do
to views attached to the table

mdc_oz=# set vacuum_mem = 10240;
mdc_oz=# vacuum full verbose cdm.cdm_ddw_Tran_item;
