Hi everyone,

i have a table with around 57 million tuples, with the following columns: pid(varchar), crit(varchar), val1(varchar), val2(varchar). Example:
pid    crit    val1    val2
p1      c1      x        y
p1      c2      x        z
p1      c3      y        x
What i am doing is to query all val1 and val2 for one pid and all crit values:

select val1, val2, crit from mytable where pid='somepid' and crit in(select crit from myCritTable);
where myCritTable is a table that contains all crit values (around 42.000) ordered by their insertion date.


 Hash IN Join  (cost=1033.67..134959.41 rows=37120 width=23) (actual time=357.11
6..356984.535 rows=37539 loops=1)
   Hash Cond: (("outer".snp_id)::text = ("inner".snp_id)::text)
   ->  Bitmap Heap Scan on test2  (cost=232.92..132766.66 rows=37120 width=23) (
actual time=291.600..356707.737 rows=37539 loops=1)
         Recheck Cond: ((pid)::text = '1'::text)
         ->  Bitmap Index Scan on idx_test2_pid  (cost=0.00..232.92 rows=37120 w
idth=0) (actual time=234.516..234.516 rows=37539 loops=1)
               Index Cond: ((pid)::text = '1'::text)
   ->  Hash  (cost=700.20..700.20 rows=40220 width=13) (actual time=65.055..65.0
55 rows=40220 loops=1)
         ->  Seq Scan on snps_test  (cost=0.00..700.20 rows=40220 width=13) (act
ual time=0.020..30.131 rows=40220 loops=1)
 Total runtime: 357017.259 ms

Unfortunately the query takes pretty long for the big table, so maybe one of you has a suggestion on how to make it faster.
