Yeah, I just finished reading through those threads and they are
interesting, but their conclusions seem to be that the root issue is
related to IO problems, particular with regard to checkpoints. Since I'm
not running postgres on the pgpool2 boxes at all, I really don't think it's
directly related to the problem I'm seeing. My pgpool2 boxes have virtually
no IO load on them at all.
