On this smaller test, the indexes are over the allowed memory size (I've got
over 400.000 readings per sensor) so they are mostly written in disk. And on the
big test, I had small indexes (< page_size) because I only had about 5-10 rows
per table, thus it was 3000*8kb = 24mb which is lower than the allowed memory.

btw which is the conf parameter that contains the previously read indexes ?

I cannot do test this weekend because I do not have access to the machine but I
will try on monday some tests.

Thanks for your answers thought
