I recall a reference on the list indicating that newer Xeon processors
don't suffer from the context switching problem reported last year.
In searching the archives, I can't find any specific info indentifying
which Xeon processors don't have this problem.
Anyone point me to a reference?
Is this in any way related to the version of Postgresql one is running?
We're headed for 8, but have a bit of work before we can get there.
We are currently on 7.4.16.
Thanks for any info.
Until later, Geoffrey
