I think you need to log them all. Otherwise when you go to analyze the numbers
and come up with ideal values you're going to be basing your optimization on a
skewed subset.

I don't know whether the stats collector or the logs is better suited to this.

I guess you only need top level values. But you also might want some flag if
the row counts for any node were far off. In that case perhaps you would want
to discard the data point.
