SQL: get the database size

I’m going on writing primitive posts about the fascinating world of relational database management systems. :)

MySQL, size of all databases:

mysql> SELECT table_schema \
       "Database name", \
       sum( data_length + index_length ) / 1024 / 1024 \
       "Data Base Size in MB" FROM \
       information_schema.TABLES GROUP BY table_schema;
+--------------------+----------------------+
| Database name      | Data Base Size in MB |
+--------------------+----------------------+
| fluxbb             |           0.04585648 |
| information_schema |           0.00781250 |
| mysql              |           0.60614872 |
| wordpress          |           2.22493362 |
+--------------------+----------------------+
4 rows in set (0.13 sec)

PostgreSQL, size of all databases:

cdr=> SELECT pg_database.datname,pg_size_pretty(pg_database_size(pg_database.datname)) \
      AS size FROM pg_database;
  datname  |  size   
-----------+---------
 template1 | 6705 kB
 template0 | 6697 kB
 postgres  | 6820 kB
 cdr       | 28 GB

Size of ‘acme_cdr’ table:

cdr=> SELECT pg_size_pretty(pg_total_relation_size('acme_cdr'));
 pg_size_pretty 
----------------
 28 GB
