Within the ADO-QA Monitor, you can use the following query:

select size as Number_of_8KB_chunks from [database_name].dbo.sysfiles;

***This will give you the number of 8 Kilobyte chunks for the data file ([database_name].mdf)and the transaction log ([database_name].ldf)

select size*8 as Size_in_KB_Each from [database_name].dbo.sysfiles;

***This will give you the number of Kilobytes used by the data file ([database_name].mdf) and the transaction log ([database_name].ldf)


select sum(size)*8 as Size_in_KB_Total from [database_name].dbo.sysfiles;

***This will give you the total Kilobytes used by the data file ([database_name].mdf) and the transaction log ([database_name].ldf) together.
