[SOLVED] Improve PostgreSQL query performance

Issue

When running this query in my server it’s very slow, and I can’t understand why. Can anyone help me figure it out?
Query:

SELECT
    "t_dat"."t_year" AS "c0",
    "t_dat"."t_month" AS "c1",
    "t_dat"."t_week" AS "c2",
    "t_dat"."t_day" AS "c3",
    "t_purs"."p_id" AS "c4",
    sum("t_purs"."days") AS "m0",
    sum("t_purs"."timecreated") AS "m1"
FROM "t_dat", "t_purs"
WHERE "t_purs"."created" = "t_dat"."t_key"
  AND "t_dat"."t_year" = 2013
  AND "t_dat"."t_month" = 3
  AND "t_dat"."t_week" = 9
  AND "t_dat"."t_day" IN (1,2)
  AND "t_purs"."p_id" IN (
      '4','15','18','19','20','29',
      '31','35','46','56','72','78')
GROUP BY
    "t_dat"."t_year",
    "t_dat"."t_month",
    "t_dat"."t_week",
    "t_dat"."t_day",
    "t_purs"."p_id"

Explain Analyze:

              Filter: ((t_day = ANY ('{1,2}'::integer[])) AND (t_year = 2013) AND (t_month = 3) AND (t_week = 9))

Solution

It is difficult to say what exactly you are missing, but if I were you, I would make sure that following index exists:

CREATE INDEX t_dat_id_date_idx
    ON t_dat (t_key, t_year, t_month, t_week, t_day);

For t_purs, create this index:

CREATE INDEX t_purs_created_p_id_idx
    ON t_purs (created, p_id);
