Largest Tables Including Indexes and LOBs

Just a quick code snippit. I do a lot of data pumps to move schemas between different databases; for example taking a copy of a schema to an internal database to try to reproduce a problem. Some of these schemas have some very large tables. The large tables aren’t always needed to research a particular problem.

Here’s a quick bit of SQL to list the 20 largest tables by total size – including space used by indexes and LOBs. A quick search on google didn’t reveal anything similar so I just wrote something up myself. I’m pretty sure this is somewhat efficient; if there’s a better way to do it then let me know! I’m posting here so I can reference it in the future. :)
