Can I query how much disk space certain rows or columns are taking up in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

Yes, using the below syntax −

select * from information_schema.tables where table_name=yourTableName;

Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable1600
   -> (
   -> StudentId int,
   -> StudentFirstName varchar(20)
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.51 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable1600 values(100,'Bob');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1600 values(101,'David');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.17 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable1600 values(102,'Carol');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.19 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select * from DemoTable1600;

This will produce the following output −

+-----------+------------------+
| StudentId | StudentFirstName |
+-----------+------------------+
|       100 | Bob              |
|       101 | David            |
|       102 | Carol            |
+-----------+------------------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Fetch how much disk space certain rows or columns are taking up −

mysql> select * from information_schema.tables where table_name='DemoTable1600';

This will produce the following output

+---------------+--------------+---------------+------------+--------+---------+------------+------------+----------------+-------------+-----------------+--------------+-----------+----------------+---------------------+-------------+------------+-----------------+----------+----------------+---------------+
