We have a primary key of serial type that is incremented automatically based on Postgres sequence.

The problem is this field at midnight start having a big gaps between it values. example:


We don't have delete operation on this tables (we do only soft delete). We are using Postgres 9.3.

As discussed above the real problem is not the sequence it self but we found that we had a big number of aborted transactions!

And after fixing the sequence issue was fixed as well.
