Re: actual Size calculation of mysql table (engine innodb)

(Or look in the information_schema database for the same info)
Data_length = bytes for data + PRIMARY KEY
Index_length = bytes for secondary indexes

Be aware that InnoDB has several forms of overhead -- at the record level, block level, etc, so the sizes you see are likely to be 2x-3x the size you would predict by adding the data sizes of the fields (eg, INT is 4 bytes).

If you would like further discussion of the numbers you see, please provide that SHOW, plus SHOW CREATE TABLE tablename;
