Fuel pump / water pump / oil pump flow measurement

Just wondering if it would be useful for tuners to monitor their flow? The reason I ask this is I had a weird idea last night and thought surely people with 500+Bhp vehicles need to know if the pump is at maximum / flowing correctly ? Must mean they take out the pump and psychically inspect it ?

The flow measurement I had in mind is Non-invasive, calibrated to -/+1% error discrepancy and measured via pump lines meaning no need to remove pump.

Traders and Members opinions appreciated.

Wouldn't it be sufficient to monitor pressures rather than flow rates?

In terms of diagnostics, I don't know jack. Which is why i am asking, weather it'll be a useful to measure flow or not ?

I guess if pressure is the best way then i'll stop thinking about this idea in my head.

Perhaps it might be good to monitor coolant flow rates, especially if running an electric pump? The first warning of things being amiss is generally high coolant temps or coolant being pushed out, but that could be caused by quite a number of different things of which reduced or zero flow is just one.
