I want to split table partitioned across two servers postgres (two hosts).
To query this remote object, I want to make view with union on two servers with
two dblink.

But, How to be sure that optimizer plan on remote node is same than local node
(ie : optimizer scan only the selected partitions and not make full scan  of
the remote object) ?

example : server 1 (table test partionned on field number and 1 < number <10)
          server 2 (table test partitioned on field number 10 <number <20)

server 3 has view like :
create view remote_test
select * from dblink('conn_server1', select * from test) as test_server1(....)
select * from dblink('conn_server2', select * from test) as test_server2(....)

If I've made select on view remote_test like :
select * from remote_test where number<5 and number >15.

optimizer made full scan of all partitions on all servers or
scan only partition 1 to partition 4 on server1
and scan partiton 16 to partition 19 on server2
and union  ?

In fact, I don't know how to have explain plan of remote node.

Thanks a lot.
