Hi Team,

I have very good configuration server dedicated only for PostgresSql. Server is 16 Core 122 GB RAM on Linux machine.

select version();

PostgreSQL 9.3.4 on x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu, compiled by gcc (GCC) 4.8.2 20131212 (Red Hat 4.8.2-7), 64-bit

I have set the following parameter

show segment_size; (Set during installation)
32 GB

show block_size; (Set during installation)
16 KB

show shared_buffers;
30 GB

show temp_buffers;
8 GB

show effective_cache_size;
60 GB

show work_mem;
30 GB

show maintenance_work_mem;
8 GB

I have the fact table with 128M rows and join with small table with 100 rows.

explain analyze
SELECT s.store_code,
       SUM(sale_net_val) Sales_value,
       SUM(sale_tot_qty) Qty,
  FROM arc_dw_ca_etl.dim_store s,
       arc_dw_ca_etl.AGG_MCSP a
 WHERE s.store_key = a.store_key
   AND a.date_key BETWEEN 20110126 AND 20120126

    Total runtime: 278084.789 ms

If i have understand properly the data fetching is not taking much time(taking 10 sec's)[considered only upper limits].

But for sort operation(131 Sec's) and GroupAggregate(277 Sec's) it is taking most of the time.

Since the server is very high end I am expecting it should not take more than 10 Sec's to get the result.

Can someone help to resolve this performance issue?

Is re-writing the query an option or is it generated by some tool?
