|Views:||Raw Message | Whole Thread | Download mbox | Resend email|
attached is a patch that improves performance when dropping multiple
tables within a transaction. Instead of scanning the shared buffers for
each table separately, the patch removes this and evicts all the tables
in a single pass through shared buffers.
Our system creates a lot of "working tables" (even 100.000) and we need
to perform garbage collection (dropping obsolete tables) regularly. This
often took ~ 1 hour, because we're using big AWS instances with lots of
RAM (which tends to be slower than RAM on bare hw). After applying this
patch and dropping tables in groups of 100, the gc runs in less than 4
minutes (i.e. a 15x speed-up).
This is not likely to improve usual performance, but for systems like
ours, this patch is a significant improvement.
