Okay, so a pkey index entry will take 32 bytes counting overhead ...
you've got about 10:1 bloat on the stats_min indexes and 2:1 in stats_hr.
Definitely bad :-(
I expect the bloat is coming from the fact that the interesting range of
"start" changes over time. 7.4 should be able to recycle index space
in that situation, but 7.3 and before can't.
