I'll let you know as soon as I've tested it.

Yes, it appears (or at least is highly correlated) to be related to the size of the table - 60M rows  So, I dumped the table, truncated the table, added the node and then reloaded - no issues.

Do you mind retrying with a smaller work_mem size? I believe you said you set yours for 1GB. When redistributing, it will use a size of work_mem internally. 1 GB happens to be 1073741824 bytes, and that error message gets triggered at 1GB - 1 byte.

I think the fix here is for us to cap this to be below 1 GB if work_mem is too high.


Please try attached patch and let me know if it helps, then I will commit it.
