You probably also want to see top *and bottom* indexes, as maintaining
indexes in postgresql not only hurts insert performance, but it also
impairs HOT updates, which makes it much more important to remove
unused indexes than in MySQL.

You have access to lots of statistics for all relations (tables,
indexes and such), which can also help refine your reports.

Personally, I routinely check "long-lived transactions" and the
queries that generate them, as they're a constant pain with MVCC, by
sorting pg_stat_activity by transaction start time, and checking the
first few transaction if they've been started "long ago" (with "long"
varying from application to application)
