Hello there

Running postgreSQL 7.0.3 on a SuSE linux server (1GHz, PIII, 384 MB RAM) I
have problems with the performance. There are three to six postmaster
processes running. One with ODBC connector to a NT server , the others use
JDBC. Each month, we're having this situation. The customer encounters
bad/slow performance. A list that normaly takes 20 seconds to display takes
the up to 3 minutes.

I did a

vacuum verbose analyze zylinder on the main table for this list and got the
following output :

mondadori=# vacuum verbose analyze zylinder;
NOTICE:  --Relation zylinder--
NOTICE:  Pages 12275: Changed 2, reaped 12264, Empty 0, New 0; Tup 1609:

Please help me in analyzing this output. After vacuum/analyze, the
performance is ok for another month.

Thanks in advance ... jr
