can compaction memory gain be calculated as, for example,

mem_used_total #before_compaction - mem_used_total #after_compaction ?


if yes, then do we need this attr at all?

the other thing is - why does this attr return the sum of all compactions?
wouldn't it be more informative to return the number of bytes gained after
the most recent compaction? but, once again, is this attr worth having?
