You can use Exchange management console or shell to access the properties of the group/shared mailbox to its size.

from EMS run Get-MailboxStatistics "mailboxName" | Select TotalItemSize

As far as Online archiving is concerned, You have a inbuilt feature coming with SP1, i.e. personal archive. Please go through the below links for more details.
