Hi John,

    Thanks! for the reply,  My postgres version is  7.4.2.  since this
is on a production database and one of critical table in our system I
cant run the vacuum full analyze on this table because of the locks. I
recently rebuilt this table from the scratch and recreated all the
indexes and after 2-3 weeks the same problem again. My max_fsm_pages are
set to the default value due think it might be the problem ? i would
like to change it but that involves restarting the postgres database
which i cant do at this moment . What is index bloat ?  do you think
rebuilding the indexes again might help some extent ?
