Hi @Anantha123 ...

1). on DMC, you can get the index size details. 

2). Using dbinspect command you can get the index size

| dbinspect index=myindex | eval GB=sizeOnDiskMB/1024 | stat sum(GB) 

3). rest command 

| rest /services/data/indexes | stats values(currentDBSizeMB) by title

4) eventcount command:


| eventcount summarize=false index=* report_size=true | eval GB=(size_bytes/1024)/1024/1024 | stats sum(GB) by index, server


 5) collect command: (not sure of this... pls test this one)


|collect index=myindex
