to check how much MB of data is returned in each stored procedure call..

in sql server, is there a way to see how much of MB is returned by a call of a stored procedure? (through DMV or other means?)

What do you mean? A stored procedure doesn't return nothing.
A function maybe? But then you already know the data type of what it will be returned and if it's a table then you already know the row size so you only need to calculate (number of rows) X (size of row).

There is a tool to provide statistics. I have never used it, but according to the documentation and the sample code, it can returned a BytesReceived value after executing a command through a DataAdapter.

Right click on an empty space in SSMS and select "Include Client Statistics" - when you execute the stored procedure (or any query, for that matter), you'll get a tab with a whole bunch of additional information about the query you just ran, and one of those items is "Bytes returned from server", which will give you what you want.
