It's second query rewrite postgresql seems not to handle - making EXCEPT
from NOT IT.
Here is an example:
drop table if exists t1;
drop table if exists t2;
create temporary table t1(id) as
(random()*100000)::int from generate_series(1,200000) a(id);
create temporary table t2(id) as
(random()*100000)::int from generate_series(1,100000) a(id);
select * from t1 where id not in (select id from t2);
"Seq Scan on t1 (cost=1934.00..164105319.00 rows=100000 width=4)"
" Filter: (NOT (subplan))"
" -> Materialize (cost=1934.00..3325.00 rows=100000 width=4)"
" -> Seq Scan on t2 (cost=0.00..1443.00 rows=100000 width=4)"
Query 2 (gives same result as Q1):
select * from t1 except all (select id from t2);
"SetOp Except All (cost=38721.90..40221.90 rows=30000 width=4)"
" -> Sort (cost=38721.90..39471.90 rows=300000 width=4)"
" Sort Key: "*SELECT* 1".id"
" -> Append (cost=0.00..7328.00 rows=300000 width=4)"
" -> Subquery Scan "*SELECT* 1" (cost=0.00..4885.00
" -> Seq Scan on t1 (cost=0.00..2885.00 rows=200000
" -> Subquery Scan "*SELECT* 2" (cost=0.00..2443.00
" -> Seq Scan on t2 (cost=0.00..1443.00 rows=100000
If I am correct, planner simply do not know that he can rewrite NOT IN as
"EXCEPT ALL" operator, so all NOT INs when list of values to remove is long
takes very much time.
So the question is: I am willing to participate in postgresql development
because it may be easier to fix planner then to rewrite all my queries :).
How can I? (I mean to work on query planner enhancements by providing new
options of query rewrite, not to work on other thing nor on enhancing
planner in other ways, like better estimations of known plans).
