Advice on reducing size of database tables

Our development database size currently seems to be exceeding 20GB and customer have asked us to provide some inputs on expected database size/capacity to control backups/disk space etc..

Out of the 20 GB,

               13-14 GB seems to be Rules data

               2-3 GB is application data

               3-5 GB seems to be other system data tables like pr_perf_stats, pr_sys_statusdetail

I have attached an excel showing top system tables occupying space in our database

Platform – 7.1.8 with Customer Services 7.1.3

Is there a guidance document available somewhere which I can refer to understand the expected

  • Rules/system data tables growth w.r.t application data
  • What can be turned off w/o impacting application to reduce size of rules/system data tables
  • Some other literate which can aid understanding and knowledge in this area
