Hello,

First some specifics:

OS Linux FC1
1 Gig of Ram
IDE RAID 1 array
AMD 2200 XP

Running both 8.0rc2 and 7.4.6 for testing. The function is a plphp
function. The code for the function is below:


CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION get_users(bigint[]) RETURNS SETOF
resolved_users_type AS '
$userData = array();
$temp = array();
foreach ($args[0] as $value) { $temp[] = $value."::bigint"; }
$res = spi_exec_query("SELECT id, realname, email FROM users WHERE
id IN (".implode(",", $temp).")");
if ($res[''processed''] > 0) {
while ($row = spi_fetch_row($res)) {
$userData[] = $row;
}
}
return ($userData) ? $userData : NULL;
' LANGUAGE 'plphp';


Basically we take an array of values and look up a list of users based
on the elements in the array and return the results. There is a static
cast for 7.4.6 sake which may not be required for 8.

Here is a sample dataset for the users table:

id | realname | email
------+--------------------+------------------------------

12 | Steven1 Klassen | sklassen1@commandprompt.com
56 | Jonathan Daugherty | jdaugherty@commandprompt.com
2000 | Steven Klassen | sklassen@commandprompt.com
23 | Steven1 Klassen | sklassen1@commandprompt.com
690 | Steven Klassen | sklassen@commandprompt.com
4000 | Steven Klassen | sklassen@commandprompt.com
1243 | Steven Klassen | sklassen@commandprompt.com
5 | Steven1 Klassen | sklassen1@commandprompt.com
6 | Steven1 Klassen | sklassen1@commandprompt.com
230 | Steven Klassen | sklassen@commandprompt.com
330 | Steven Klassen | sklassen@commandprompt.com
430 | Steven Klassen | sklassen@commandprompt.com
440 | Steven Klassen | sklassen@commandprompt.com
550 | Steven Klassen | sklassen@commandprompt.com
660 | Steven Klassen | sklassen@commandprompt.com
770 | Steven Klassen | sklassen@commandprompt.com


Here is the functional_query we are running:

SELECT * FROM
get_users('{2,4,8,9,12,56,2000,23,690,4000,1243,5,6,230,330,430,440,550,660,770}');

Statistics is set to 50 on the id column (which is way to high). It has
about 51000 rows.

8.0 first run: 109.664 ms
8.0 second run: 2.939 ms

7.4.6 first run: 121.416ms
7.4.6 second run: 8.665 ms

So this shows a significant increase in functions performance for second
+ runs and a little difference for first runs. If I enable preload
libraries the numbers are the following:

8.0 first run: 107.689ms
8.0 second run: 2.915 ms

7.4.6 first run: 119.400 ms
7.4.6 second run: 8.629 ms

It doesn't look like preload libraries helps as much as I would like but
every little bit helps. The really good news of course is the amazing
increase in performance from 7.4.6 to 8.0. I assume this is because
we are now keeping statistics for functions.

The changes in 8.0 should help projects like TSearch2 quite a bit.

One thing I did note that is very odd is:

sklassen=# explain analyze select * from
get_users('{2,4,8,9,12,56,2000,23,690,4000,1243,5,6,230,330,430,440,550,660,770}');
QUERY PLAN
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Function Scan on get_users (cost=0.00..12.50 rows=1000 width=72)
(actual time=2.464..2.488 rows=20 loops=1)
Total runtime: 2.520 ms


SELECT id, realname, email FROM users WHERE id IN
(2::bigint,4::bigint,8::bigint,9::bigint,12::bigint,56::bigint,2000::bigint,23::bigint,690::bigint,4000::bigint,1243::bigint,5::bigint,6::bigint,230::bigint,330::bigint,430::bigint,440::bigint,550::bigint,660::bigint,770::bigint)"
LOG: duration: 2.937 ms


Notice the two durations, they are different but for the exact same run
on the query. Is the duration being calculated between psql and the backend?


Sincerely,
