It depends on your usage and your data structures. It sounds like you use ERPNext heavily. In that case 1GB is not surprising at all. In 2017, 1GB for 6 months of data is almost nothing.

Thank you @felix


Am interested in knowing the volume of data/transaction that led to this in 6 months.

If it is possible I would like to know

Number of Items created
Number of employees/users
Daily Average number of transactions

Would also like to know the server specs you are using.

Thank you

I have same case in one ERPNext instance.
When I checked this, I found client is using email feature and in email he is attaching images.
So db size is increased a lot due to attachments.
