Memory Question

Hi all! =)

I installed the plugin that WPMUDEV mentioned on their Facebook page today and I’m not sure exactly how to interpret the results.

From the admin area I get this


ACTION HOOK: plugins_loaded – 30.73 MBs

ACTION HOOK: setup_theme – 33.11 MBs

ACTION HOOK: init – 35.34 MBs

ACTION HOOK: plugins_loaded – 40.21 MBs

MAX MEMORY USED: 40.63 MBs


Added together, it would appear that just loading the admin area is taking a touch over 180 MB’s of memory….which I find very hard to believe.

It’s even worse when I look at it from the home page


ACTION HOOK: plugins_loaded – 28.24 MBs

ACTION HOOK: setup_theme – 30.62 MBs

ACTION HOOK: init – 32.96 MBs

ACTION HOOK: wp_head – 33.21 MBs

ACTION HOOK: loop_start – 33.24 MBs

ACTION HOOK: loop_end – 33.25 MBs

ACTION HOOK: wp_footer – 33.22 MBs

ACTION HOOK: plugins_loaded – 33.15 MBs

MAX MEMORY USED: 33.72 MBs


Anyone have a clue what these numbers mean? I sure don’t. : /

Thank you
