Why Is My Multisite DB So Large

I've got a relatively new multisite install, with about 200 sites created. Most of these sites are very small with only 2 or 3 custom posts created but the database seems huge - its currently around 2.4GB.

Is there any reason for it to be so large? I've developed the site using Types and Views from Toolset but I don't think this should cause all the apparent bloat.

    Hi Michael, hope you're well?

    I've never used Types or Views toolset. But with 200 sites created, and if you used that on each of those sites, depending on how much that plugin uses to create the pages, it could easily reach a fair amount of space multiplied by the 200 sites if each has their own. Then the content itself, + the plugin data & so on.

    What other plugins do you have installed?

    Without seeing your Database, I can't really say for sure.

    Hope this helps
