Confluence administrators may want to audit draft page usage on their instance. 


The following query will identify the number of pages with a status of "draft" and the total size they take up in the database, per space:

    count(content.contentid) as number_of_drafts,
    pg_size_pretty(sum(pg_column_size(bodycontent.body))) as total_size_of_drafts,
	spaces.spacename as space_name
from bodycontent 
inner join content on (content.contentid = bodycontent.contentid)
inner join spaces on (content.spaceid = spaces.spaceid)
where bodycontent.contentid in 
(select contentid from CONTENT where CONTENT_STATUS = 'draft' and CONTENTTYPE = 'PAGE') 
GROUP BY space_name
ORDER BY number_of_drafts DESC, space_name;

The query above is written for PostgresSQL databases and may require adjustment for other platforms.
