Hmm. I don't see how we can call it pg_table_size because people think of tables and indexes, while relation has a more inclusive suggestion. As far as pg_dbfile_size, do you have any other idea for a name? To me, it returns the size of the 'db file' associated with the heap/index/toast. -- Bruce Momjian | http://candle.pha.pa.us firstname.lastname@example.org | (610) 359-1001 + If your life is a hard drive, | 13 Roberts Road + Christ can be your backup. | Newtown Square, Pennsylvania 19073 ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 8: explain analyze is your friend
