Now I have upgrade it to concrete 5.8 or latest version.
In site approximately 2-3 cache data and in database is 3 Gb.

That is no direct path for upgrading from 5.6 to v8. You have 2 choices:

1- You can use the migration tool that will allow you to migrate most core data: pages, users, files, attributes... it will not migrate anything non-core so custom blocks and coding, packages from the marketplace, all that will not be migrated. You can find the information and links to the tools here:http://andrewembler.com/2015/11/upgrade-concrete5-sites-57-using-ou...

2- You rebuild the site from scratch

I suggest using both approaches. Use the migration tool to get all the content, pages and cor stuff to the new site and then build a new theme with updated functionality from scratch
