The on-disk .rdb file is compressed, so 1GB is a relatively large database.

As you store everything related to Rspamd in the single Redis instance there is no easy way to determine how much database space each module consumes, I'm afraid. Probably you need to to count the number of keys matching patterns with redis-cli.
Also some excessive numbers (like stored fuzzy hashes, history nrows, etc.) can indirectly indicate the source of the problem.
