The perl drivers don't currently use database level prepared statements
which would give a small boost.
But your best bet is to switch to using COPY instead of INSERT. Two ways
to do this.
1) Drop DBD::Pg and switch to the Pg driver for Perl instead (non-DBI
compliant) which has functions similar to putline() that allow COPY to
2) Have your perl script output a .sql file with the data prepared (COPY
statements) which you feed into the database via psql.
You can probably achieve a 50% increase in throughput.
