No, I don't. Why would you want to do that?
Personally, I'd be more interested in whether autovacuum, running whenever
it wants without me knowing, is keeping the table bloat under control.
If this were a concern for me (which it was during initial testing of
our DB) I would run vacuum verbose once a day to watch sizes and what
not. After a while, I'd switch to once a week, then probably settle on
once a month to ensure nothing ever gets out of hand. Put it in a cron
job and have the output mailed.
