Should the HashAggregate node also report on Buckets and Memory Usage? I
would have found that useful several times. Is there some reason this is
not wanted, or not possible?
I've wanted that too. It's not impossible at all.
Why wouldn't that be possible? We probably can't use exactly the same
approach as Hash, because hashjoins use custom hash table while hashagg
uses dynahash IIRC. But why couldn't measure the amount of memory by
looking at the memory context, for example?
