Determine MySQL Database Size

When you work with fairly large databases, it’s often useful to know the size of one of them. For example, should you wish to take a full dump – you need to know if you have enough space on the drive you wish to keep it, and, in order to do that, you’ll need to know the size of your database. Or, you may just want to know how much of your drive is being used up by the database so you’ll know if it should grow quickly, that you’ll have enough space.
