could you prepare excerption from your db (if possible), so I could
play myself ?

The default value for SIGLENINT actually didn't work at all. It was only by
increasing it that I got any performance at all. An examination of the GIST
indexes showed that most of the first level and many of the second level
bitmaps were saturated.
tsearch2's index is a lossy index, read
so search results should be rechecked !
Yes, thanks. We do indeed recheck the actual results. The tests I'm running
are just on the raw index performance - how long does it take to "select ...
where dockeys @@ to_tsquery(...)".
We have our TODO http://www.sai.msu.su/~megera/oddmuse/index.cgi/todo
and hope to find sponsorhips for fts project for 8.2 release.
Unfortunately, I didn't find spare time to package tsearchd for you,
it should certainly help you.
At this point we may not have time to try tsearchd, and unfortunately we're
not in a position to sponsor anything yet.
My original question is still bothering me. Is it normal for a keyword that
occurs in more than about 2% of the documents to cause such inconsistent
performance? Is there any single thing I might look at that would help
improve performance (like, do I need more memory? More shared memory?
Different config parameters?)
