I've been using pgAdmin for a long time but over time it has become more and more frustrating to use it.
It's a great application that performs everything I need, however, when first connecting to servers with many databases, each with many tables, views and other objects (over a VPN) it can often take 20-30 seconds while pgAdmin is hung before it completes running all the prefetch queries.
I've analyzed its logs and it appears that some queries are the main culprit.
For example (15-20 seconds to run this):
SELECT oid, format_type(oid, NULL) AS typname FROM pg_type
We have quite a few entries there (every toasted table, every view and every table have a couple of entries there).
SELECT count(*) AS typname FROM pg_type
Also, this same query gets apparently issued twice:
2010-01-13 09:44:15 QUERY : Set query (pgdb:5432): SELECT oid, format_type(oid, NULL) AS typname FROM pg_type
2010-01-13 09:44:31 QUERY : Set query (pgdb:5432): SELECT oid, format_type(oid, NULL) AS typname FROM pg_type
2010-01-13 09:44:52 STATUS : Restoring previous environment... (37.31 secs)
Causing the application a long time to "connect".
I was wondering if there's either a way to bring a partial subset of the data (is all of it needed?) or perhaps fetch it lazily (on demand).
