The Top Tables by Growth report identifies the fastest growing tables in a database. You can select a specific database to analyze or evaluate all databases on a specific SQL Server instance. You can also choose a growth metric and its minimum threshold to see which tables match or exceed the selected value.

When to run this report

You should run the Top Tables by Growth report on a routine basis, depending on how heavily your company uses the host SQL Server instance. Use this report to see how rapidly (or slowly) tables are growing over time. If database capacity on a given instance becomes limited, run this report to see a list of tables that are the top contributors and decide whether you want to move them to another database.
