I would suggest that you start by looking at estimate_num_groups() in
src/backend/utils/adt/selfuncs.c.  You might also want to look at
cost_agg() in src/backend/optimizer/path/costsize.c, and also the
places where it gets called.  They don't all estimate the number of
groups in the same way.

[HACKERS] Cardinality estimation for group by

2016-10-04 Thread Chenxi Li
Friends,

How is cardinality estimation for "group by" is done and where is the code
doing that?

Best Regards,
