I have a PL/PGSQL routine that does one select and a lot (~400 lines) of
floating point computations. In rapid succession my JDBC application calls
this routine about 170 times. It gets slower as time drags on, taking
around 5 seconds per call at the beginning and ending up taking about 15
seconds per call at the end.
I have a much shorter (about 10 lines), but less efficient PL/Perl routine
that accomplishes the same computation, but does a lot of string matching
and runs slower. But the same problem occurs Each call takes longer the
more I call it.
Are there postgress issues I should be aware of regarding calling pl/pgsql
and pl/perl routines, or using JDBC to call these routines? Is there a way
to prevent this increase in time?
