Managing the sizes of database tables in SugarCRM instances is the type of maintenance task most of us don't want to deal with. As your deployment matures, more and more data is entered into your CRM. As this data accumulates, storage can become an issue, regardless of whether you are self-hosted in your own environment or on the SugarCloud.
To resolve this, we developed a tool that tracks row counts and sizes for all tables in the Sugar database — as well as the database overall — called Database Tracker. This tracking tool gives system administrators a better understanding of the size of tables and the database over time, allowing them to determine what changes may be impacting the database size.
