How to get the size of the tables of a MySQL database?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To get the size of the tables of a MySQL database, you can use the “information_schema.tables”.

Here is the syntax to know the size of all tables.

SELECT TABLE_NAME AS `ALLTABLESNAME`, ROUND((DATA_LENGTH + INDEX_LENGTH) / 1024 / 1024) AS `TABLESIZEIN(MB)`
   FROM information_schema.TABLES WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA = "yourDatabaseName"
   ORDER BY (DATA_LENGTH + INDEX_LENGTH) ASC;

Let us apply the above syntax to get the size of the tables.

mysql> SELECT TABLE_NAME AS `ALLTABLESNAME`, ROUND((DATA_LENGTH + INDEX_LENGTH) / 1024 / 1024) AS `TABLESIZEIN(MB)`
   ->  FROM information_schema.TABLES WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA = "business"
   -> ORDER BY (DATA_LENGTH + INDEX_LENGTH) ASC;

Sample Output.
