Hi All,
 
Thank you very much for your help in configuring the database.
 
Can you guys please take a look at the following query and let me know why the index is not considered in the plan?
 
Here is the extract of the condition string of the query that is taking the transaction_date in index condition:
 
where (account.id = search_engine.account_fk) and ( account.status = 't' and account.id = '40288a820726362f0107263c55d00003') and (  search_engine.id = conversion.search_engine_fk   and conversion.event_type ='daily_spend' and conversion.tactic = 'PPC' and conversion.transaction_date between '2005-01-01 00:00:00' and '2005-10-31 23:59:59') group by account.id;
Plan:
"        ->  Index Scan using conversion_all on "conversion"  (cost=0.00..6.02 rows=1 width=98)"
"              Index Cond: (((tactic)::text = 'PPC'::text) AND ((event_type)::text = 'daily_spend'::text) AND (transaction_date >= '2005-01-01 00:00:00'::timestamp without time zone) AND (transaction_date <= '2005-10-31 23:59:59'::timestamp without time zon (..)"
Here is the extract of the condition string of the query that is not  taking the transaction_date in index condition:
 
where ( account.status = 't' and account.id  = search_engine.account_fk and account.id = '40288a820726362f0107263c55d00003' ) and (  search_engine.id = conversion.search_engine_fk   and conversion.tactic = 'PPC' and conversion.transaction_date >= '2005-01-01 00:00:00' and conversion.transaction_date <= '2005-10-31 23:59:59'  ) group by account.id ;
 
Plan:
"        ->  Index Scan using conv_evnt_tact_trans_date_sefk on "conversion"  (cost=0.00..6.02 rows=1 width=132)"
"              Index Cond: ((("outer".id)::text = ("conversion".search_engine_fk)::text) AND (("conversion".tactic)::text = 'PPC'::text))"
"              Filter: ((transaction_date >= '2005-01-01 00:00:00'::timestamp without time zone) AND (transaction_date <= '2005-10-31 23:59:59'::timestamp without time zone))"
 
I have the following indexes defined on the columns.
conv_evnt_tact_trans_date_sefk : (search_engine_fk, tactic, event_type, transaction_date);
conv_all : (tactic, event_type, transaction_date);
 
I am really confused when I saw this plan. In both queries, I am using the same columns in the where condition, but the optimizer is taking different indexes in these two cases.
Second, even though, I have the transaction_date column specified in the second instance, why is it not taking the constraint as index condition?
 
Thanks in advance.
 
Thank you,
Kishore.
