Subject Re: Optimize cascade deletes
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2007 16:45:00 GMT
I have tried to attach the logs and the model to the message, but the
maililng list system has rejected it has spam. :-(

If the full log and/or model could be useful in understanding the
problem, I will upload them somewhere else.

Hello Aristedes,

thanks for your reply.

Before answering your questions, let me describe my "environment":

I am running everything on my own MacBookPro, with Postgresql running
on a CentOS based Parallels virtual machine, while tomcat is running
on the MacOS environment.

This is definitely not a performance wise reference configuration, but
I am not comfortable with these times anyway.

about 100 objects, from 6/7 different tables.

PostgreSQL, probably version 8.1

I have attached the full log (and also the zip of the cayenne model,
in case it is relevant); but the odd part is highlighted here (at the
begin of each line is the time stamp with format "hh:mm:ss"):

[18:09:40] DELETE FROM clipperz.RCRVRS WHERE ID_RCRVRS = ?
[18:09:40] [batch bind: 968]
[18:09:40] [batch bind: 875]
[18:09:40] [batch bind: 1177]
[18:09:40] [batch bind: 2792]
[18:11:54] === updated 68 rows.

In this case, to delete just 68 rows it took more than two minutes,
but I don't know if this time is spent somewhere inside the cayenne
code, or if this is simply the time it took PostgreSQL to "physically"
delete the rows.

Do these details help understanding what is going on?
