Hello,

Can anyone help me how to add big amount of data into database?

I tried COPY, first the addition speed was good, but after each minute it
became worser and worser.
You can see the table illustrating this below.

There were ~10,000,000 records.
There were no indexes created on table.
Table was locked in exclusive mode.


With the best regards,
Sergei




Table:
First column is size of table in kilobytes.
Second - speed of COPY command.
