i have done some testing-logging and there is some questions.
i have a qgis(2.8.2 WIN7) project with >50 tables/views in postgresql
it opens about 2-3 minutes
i saved all queries and the slowest were
"SELECT DISTINCT upper(geometrytype("geo")),st_srid("geo") FROM ..." - tables only
"SELECT st_extent("geo") FROM ..." - view only
"SELECT count(distinct "qgisid")=count("qgisid") FROM ..." - view only

What can i do to speed up?
Creating indexes helps but

Why qgis execute this queries? Can we optimize them?

users gp5st and @jef, on irc channel, gave me advise to add some parameters in my qgs file
i added to all <datasource>'s new parameter estimatedmetadata=true
"<datasource>estimatedmetadata=true dbname=..."

and it became faster.
