A production system has had a query recently degrade in performance.
What once took < 1s now takes over 1s. I have tracked down the
problem to a working example.
The first shows the query as is, without much change (actually, this
query is nested within a larger query, but it demonstrates the
problem). The query time is about 1 second.
In the second URL, a "SET ENABLE_SEQSCAN TO OFF;" is done, and the
time drops to 151ms, which is acceptable.
What I don't understand is why the ports table is scanned in the
first place. Clues please?
