Hello Gaetano,

Thank you for the reply.
I have checked the connections with the command you suggested, they
are all in status "idle".

Update on the problem described in my initial posting:

I have deleted some 4000 records from the table on the live system in
the meantime, it took about 36 minutes to complete.
After that, i ran a Vacuum full verbose on the table. The vacuum full
removed only 25 deleted records within about 5 seconds.
