SHOW TABLE STATUS; -- This will give you Data_length and Index_length.

Autoextend makes it so you don't have to worry about data growth. Except that you could fill up disk.

If you have a max or if you fill up disk, you will be in trouble.

Too late now, but innodb_file_per_table is generally recommended. That way, dropping a table will free up space to the OS. Without that setting, ibdata1 grows, but never shrinks.

How big is the disk? If it is only, say, 80GB, and ibdata1 continues to grow, and you have one big table (plus smaller ones), then it is past time to figure out what to do when you run out of disk space.
