But it doesn't allow zero estimates in most places, to prevent div by zero error, and instead clamps it at 1. 0.5% is for ...
pg_database_size() essentially queries the filesystem for the size of $PGDATA/base/oid-of-database (the per-database data directory), plus the size of every such directory in non-default tablespaces added with CREATE TABLESPACE. If there are files in these directories that don't pertain to any relation , they will be counted too. Looking at a random ...

Here you can think of using SSIS, or even KNIME for open source offerings.
