GitHub user jianqiao opened a pull request:


    Reduce the number of group-by attributes by pulling tables up aggregation.

    This PR implements an optimization (physical plan transformation) that pulls a table up
an aggregation if many of that table's attributes serve as group-by attributes in the aggregation.
We do the optimization because it is relatively slow to aggregate with a large set of group-by
attributes, as well as to avoid copying the table's many attributes all the way up a chain
of operators.
    For example, let `R` be a relation with `PRIMARY KEY x` and attributes `y`, `z`. Let `S`
be a relation with `FOREIGN KEY u` refering to `R.x` and attribute `v`. Then the optimization
rule will transform the physical plan:
      [input relation]: HashJoin(
                          [probe relation]: S
                          [build relation]: R
                          [join expression]: S.u = R.x
                          [project attributes]: v, x, y, z
      [aggregate expression]: SUM(v) AS sum_v
      [group-by attributes]: x, y, z
      [probe relation]: Aggregate(
                          [input relation]: S
                          [aggregate expression]: SUM(v) AS sum_v
                          [group-by attribute]: u
                        ) AS T
      [build relation]: R
      [join expression]: T.u = R.x
      [project attributes]: sum_v, x, y, z
    This optimization improves the performance of TPC-H Q10 from ~13s to ~5.7s, with scale
factor 100 on a cloudlab machine.
