explain just shows the plan, explain analyze shows the plan, runs the

Yeah, pgsql doesn't really track a lot of that stuff as well as
oracle.  You can use pg_stat_* tables to get some idea, and running an
individual query while using tools like iostat, vmstat, htop, and more
can give you some idea of how it's working the system.  Also the
pg_buffercache stuff (I think that's the name I'm away from my servers
right now)
