Subject Re: Reading thousands of columns
Date Wed, 14 Apr 2010 14:45:10 GMT
35-50ms for how many rows of 1000 columns each?

get_range_slices does not use the row cache, for the same reason that
oracle doesn't cache tuples from sequential scans -- blowing away
1000s of rows worth of recently used rows queried by key, for a swath
of rows from the scan, is the wrong call more often than it is the
right one.
