Greetings,

Does anyone have a script that will list database sizes for all MySQL 4.1 databases? I have a script that will do it for MySQL 5.1 but that script does not work for MySQL 4.1.  Here's the script that works from me in MySQL 5.1:

SELECT NOW(), VERSION();

SELECT table_schema,

 SUM(data_length+index_length)/1024/1024 AS total_mb,

 SUM(data_length)/1024/1024 AS data_mb,

 SUM(index_length)/1024/1024 AS index_mb,

 COUNT(*) AS tables,

 CURDATE() AS today

FROM information_schema.tables

GROUP BY table_schema

ORDER BY 2 DESC;

# Set a session variable for the largest schema for later use

SELECT @schema := table_schema,

 SUM(data_length+index_length)/1024/1024 AS total_mb

FROM information_schema.tables

GROUP BY table_schema

ORDER BY 2 DESC

LIMIT 1;

Please HELP!

This is pretty much the same script and it only works in MySQL 5.0 version not MySQL 4.1. I am looking for a script that will list database sizes for MySQL 4.1.

Can you attach the error message you gain while executing this SQL in MySQL 4.1?

The information schema table does not exist in MySQL 4.1.

then you have no choice but to go to the Mysql Data directory to check out the database table size

mostly is in /var/lib/mysql/<folder name = database name>


Command

shell> du -h
