I'm running this plugin (3.2.4)on my WP install, and experiencing some troubles lately, with some "out of memory" errors.
So i have started testing the plugin on my computer locally to speed up testing, enabling higher limits on memory usage and timeouts, basically restricted on the "official" shared-server hosting.
As a result this is are the results to run the plugin on some 8,000 posts on my computer:
* Your sitemap was last built on June 4, 2010 1:11 pm. * Your sitemap (zipped) was last built on June 4, 2010 1:11 pm. * The building process took about 403.49 seconds to complete and used 93.25 MB of memory.
So that's it, some 6 minutes running a LOT of memory consumption and, worst of all, 40/50% of CPU usage during the whole build process.
Wondering if this is by design and if there are any tweaks to lower down resources usage.
