Server IP & Memory Usage Display

Description

This plugin displays the memory limit, current memory usage, WordPress Memory Limit, IP address and PHP version in the admin footer.

There are four features we love:

1) You can easily see in the admin footer the IP where this WordPress installation is running. Very useful if you have many WordPress installations across several servers and IP addresses.

2) The memory usage and total available memory to the WordPress installation is shown in the admin footer. If memory usage is over 75% the percentage is shown in a light red and if the memory usage is over 90% the percentage is shown in red. So you can allways control with one look if there is enough memory available or if action has to be taken. It also displays the WordPress memory limit to give you more information.

3) Besides the IP address and the memory you can also see the PHP version and the type of Operating System where it’s running.

4) You can translate the plugin into your own language. So far English and Spanish translations are included. Just translate the .po file in the /lang/ folder.

What can I do with this plugin?

This plugin displays the total memory, used memory, percentage of used memory, WP memory limit, the IP address and the PHP version in the admin footer.

What ideas is this plugin based on?

We had been using the WordPress plugin WP-Memory-Usage but didn’t want the dashboard widget and needed the IP address displayed. We also didn’t like that the plugin could not be translated.

This is why we decided to create a new plugin that solves these two explained needs: IP address display and ability to translate.

System requirements

PHP version 5.3 or greater.

Reviews

A must have when migrating / handling dev & production server

Super useful when, for example, you have duplicated your install on a new server and changed your host file to directly access yoru new install whereas the standard visitors are still going to your old server… This way you always know on what WP server you are really making the changes !

Useful to compare memory footprint

Useful plugin to compare different WP setups and their memory footprint.
This info can be used to roughly evaluate necessary memory usage for handling multiple simultaneous requests.
