Support » Plugin: The Social Links » Plugin using 88.5mb of PHP memory

  • I wanted to make you aware that The Social Links plugin was using 88.5mb of PHP memory on our site. It caused our site to stop loading, instead outputting the memory error to the screen. Our host kept bumping up our memory as far as 128mb and we were still having problems. We’ve got multi-site enabled with 5 sites set up and the plugin was network activated.

    I used the P3 (Plugin Performance Profiler) to see what was using the most resources and The Social Links plugin was consuming 73%. I then used the Memory Viewer plugin to see how much memory was being consumed at each stage of the page loading process, and between the time the theme loaded and plugins loaded it jumped from 30.67mb to 121.58mb. Once I network deactivated The Social Links, it went from 30.55mb to just 33.08mb. I can send you screenshots from the Memory Viewer plugin and forward you the email report that the P3 plugin sent me if you need confirmation.

    I’m not sure if this is some problem unique to Multi-Site or what, but wanted you to be aware of it. Feel free to contact me for more information on the WordPress configuration we’re using.

    Hi @jennettefulda,

    Thanks for giving a detailed report.

    We’ll have a look if we can find a memory leak in the plugin. If we can’t we will then ask for some more details about your specific set up.

    Kind regards,
