You dont give any table details, so I'll have to guess. Maybe you have
too many indexes on your table? Or, you dont have a good primary index,
which means your updates are changing the primary key?
If you only have a primary index, and you are not changing it, Pg should
be able to do HOT updates.
If you have lots of indexes, you should review them, you probably don't
need half of them.
And like Kevin said, try the simple one first. Wont hurt anything, and
if it works, great!
