The size of the log file sometimes, determines the performance of a database and if you have been allocated limited space for hosting a database driven website, then you must be very careful while managing your database.

There is another script with which you can check the database properties. Run the below script on the local database.
SELECT database_id, DB_NAME(database_id) DatabaseName, Name AS FileName, physical_name AS FilePath, (size*8)/1024.0 AS [FileSize (MB)] FROM sys.master_files WHERE DB_NAME(database_id) = 'master'
Note: Your service provider may not give you the permission to view the sys.master_files.
