I spent a whopping seven hours restoring a database late Fri nite for a
client. We stopped the application, ran pg_dump -v -Ft -b -o $db >
~/pre_8.3.tar on the 8.2.x db, and then upgrading the software to 8.3. I then
did a pg_restore -v -d $db ./pre_8.3.tar and watched it positively crawl.
I'll grant you that it's a 5.1G tar file, but 7 hours seems excessive.
Is that kind of timeframe 'abnormal' or am I just impatient? :) If the former,
I can provide whatever you need, just ask for it.
