copy does not fit so well, as it is not only initial populating.


Why do you say COPY doesn't fit? It seems to me that COPY fits perfectly for your case, and would certainly make the load faster.
well, more than one table needs to get populated and data is not really available in one file.

I suspect (not sure though) that the degradation is most because you are inserting one row at a time, and, it needs to verify FSM (Free Space Map) for each tuple inserted, when the table start to get more populated, this verification starts to become slower. If that is really the case, COPY would certainly improve that, or even INSERT with many rows at once.
allright, sounds reasonable. 

But what is your experience: is it possible that 
inserting the first 20000 records takes 29 seconds while inserting lot 20 (i.e. 9*20000 later) takes
186.9 sec? after all we are talking only about 200000 records? That take 6 times longer!!

odd, anyone has an idea?
