I'm facing to a performance problem, when I run PostgreSQL 7.
2.1 + RedHat Linux 7.3 on a Xeon Dual CPU machine.

Compared with a P4 2.4GHz machine, pgbench shows 1/10 on the
Xeon machine (detail is describled below), while hdparm
shows 2 times faster.

Disabling HTT had no effects. PostgreSQL 7.2.3 is also slow
on the machine.

I'm grateful if any of you can give me an advice.

thank you.
