Add Output File Size to Filter List in InFlight

Add a new filter that allows customers to search by the Output File Size. This should have an 'Equal / Greater Than / Less Than (Variable Condition). We should ALSO make this field available as a Column Selection in InFlight so customers can "show" or "hide" this.

How will this idea be used?

Currently, some maps produce a zero output file step that we log in InFlight. Customers often need to query InFlight to find out what transactions are producing zero output so that possible map conditions can be altered. Today, the actual Process and Send Steps are in InFlight, but when you select that step and look at the File Details tab (on the right), you see "File data is temporarily unavailable for this event"  There is currently no way to generate a results set for this filter condition in InFlight.
