Well last evening (did not try it this morning) it was taking the extra
I have made some adjustments to the config file per a few web sites that you
all recommended my looking at.
It is now using 137 of 756 meg avail.
it is now taking 8 secs to return 22,000 rows (using pgadminIII in a sql
The EXPLAIN ANALYSE still shows the same as below, but the table has 344,000
recs of which only 22636 are clientnum = 'SAKS'
I am still doing a seq search (this applies to the view question where if it
is a small result set it used a index search but on a larger return set it
did a seq search) in my view, but with the adjustments to the kernel I get a
result in 140 secs (MSSQL was 135 secs).
This is not production, I am still very worried that I have to do all this
tweeking to use this, MSSQL worked out of the box as it does (not saying its
great, but I never had to adjust a kernel setting etc). Since we cannot
afford the 70,000 dollars they want to license it I am not implying I can
use MSSQL, but I could look at other DB's like MYSQL, or Firebird, etc.
I have a lot of time now (two weeks) in this conversion and do not wish to
give up, I will see if I can learn what is needed to get the maximum
performance. I have seen much information available and this list has been a
huge resource. I really appreciate all the help.

That's only 1 second - to return 22,636 rows. Not 27 seconds, as in the
original post. You'll never persuade PG to use the index when some 75%
of your rows match the filter - it just doesn't make sense.
