Hello everyone,
in a substantial multi location development project we are using PG to
create a large information system. 
After having loaded data in the order of one million records a vaccum took
50h of CPU time on a 350MHz PII (RedHat 5.2, pg 6.4.2). There were no
deletes or anyting like that.

What does vaccum do that takes so long and is there a way to speed this up?
