Open Source Databases: As the Tables Turn - Page 5

The Forum Summary Test

This was another simple test that I again expected MySQL would win handily. It involves basically joining two tables and grouping to get a count of matching items in the second table. Nothing mind boggling.
Performance of count(*)'s have always been a dog on Postgres in the past - so I was really really surprised by this test, and some others I ran. Clearly, this is an area where Postgres has recently done some optimization work.
