If you won't believe it, then we certainly can't convince you. AFAIK your bad view is a bad query plan made worse by the Dell's hardware problems. > I am giving up on postgres and three developers two months of work and > trying MYSQL. I'd suggest testing your *whole* application and not just this one query. And remember that you need to test InnoDB tables if you want transactions. > > I have posted several items and not got a response (not that I expect folks > to drop everything). I want to thank everyone who has been of help and > there are several. Hmmm ... I see about 25 responses to some of your posts on this list. Including ones by some of our head developers. That's more than you'd get out of a paid MSSQL support contract, I know from experience. If you want anything more, then you'll need a "do-or-die" contract with a support company. If your frustration is because you can't find this kind of help than I completely understand ... I have a waiting list for performance contracts myself.

Hmmm ... you're willing to pay MySQL $4k but expect the PG community to solve all your problems with free advice and a couple $100 with CMD?

While I understand your frustration (I've been frustrated more than a few times with issues that stump me on Linux, for example) it's extremely unfair to lash out at a community that has provided you a lot of free advice because the advice hasn't fixed everything yet. By my reading, you first raised your query issue 6 days ago. 6 days is not a lot of time for getting *free* troubleshooting help by e-mail. Certainly it's going to take more than 6 days to port to MySQL. -- --Josh Josh Berkus Aglio Database Solutions San Francisco ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 1: subscribe and unsubscribe commands go to [EMAIL PROTECTED]
