Finding MySQL Table Disk Usage Via SQL

A little snippet that’s a deep-geek note-to-self. Darren found this from modifying information on this site and I figured I wanted to keep it around as it looks potentially handy to have. Also once google indexes things I’ll be able to find it easily again!


SELECT
table_schema, count(*) TABLES,
concat(round(sum(table_rows)/1000000,2),'M')
rows,concat(round(sum(data_length)/(1024*1024*1024),2),'G')
DATA,concat(round(sum(index_length)/(1024*1024*1024),2),'G')
idx,concat(round(sum(data_length+index_length)/(1024*1024*1024),2),'G')
total_size,round(sum(index_length)/sum(data_length),2) idxfrac
FROM
information_schema.TABLES group by table_schema;
