You need dbinspect and the rawSize field:
https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/SplunkCloud/6.6.0/SearchReference/Dbinspect

Try this:

|dbinspect index=a OR index=b OR ... OR index=z | table index rawSize

You might also check out the Fire Brigade app:
https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1632/
Or your Monitoring Console:
