I have, what appears to be a big problem.
1 GIG SDRam,
3 WD HD's
1 - 20 Gig -15 Gig system and 5 Gig Swap
mounted as /
2 - 80 Gig (8 M Cache) in Redhat software RAID 1 (mirror) using Adaptec
1200 as an IDE Controller
mounted as /usr/local/pgsql
Redhat 8 w/ latest kernel and all updates.
I have a much slower machine that has been running my database. We are
trying to upgrade to the above machine to make things a bit faster.
I followed "Tips for upgrading PostgreSQL from 6.5.3 to 7.0.3" by Mark
Stosberg with only a few changes
[postgres(at)sqlsrv root]# pg_dump -cs mydbtable >sqlschema.sql
[postgres(at)sqlsrv root]# pg_dump -a mydbtable > sqldump.sql
sqlschema.sql = 900K
sqldump.sql = 2.4G
[sftp files to aforementioned machine]
[postgres(at)newsqlsrv root]# psql -e mydbtable <sqlschema.sql 2>&1 | tee
schema-full-results.txt; grep ERROR schema-full-results.txt
All this works perfectly, quite fast but when I ran....
[postgres(at)newsqlsrv root]# psql -e <sqldump.sql 2>&1 | tee
inserts-full-results.txt; grep ERROR inserts-full-results.txt
It started off quick, but it got to the first table w/ any real data in it
(only about 30k records) and acted like it was frozen. I left it running
all night, it finished that table and started on others but it hasnt even
gotten to the big tables (2 @ about 9 million records). At this pace it
will take several days to finish the restore.
I hope this is something easy/stupid that I have missed. I know that w/
mirroring my write times are not improved, but they are DEFINATLY not this
I hope that I havent missed any information.
Thank you in advance for any direction.
