Support » Plugin: Server IP & Memory Usage Display » Reporting HUGE Memory Allocation (268435456 MB)

  • Resolved John



    This is what my site is showing in the footer:

    Memory: 90.42 of 268435456 MB (0%) | WP LIMIT: 40 MB | IP (–redacted–) | PHP 5.3.29 @64BitOS

    Our PHP memory limit (from our PHPinfo.php file within the site directory) shows 128.
    I’m on a shared server with iPower.
    We regularly see 500 server errors which our host indicates are due to exceeding our memory limit.

    Thanks for this monitoring tool, however, I am confused by the reported memory limit in the hundreds of TB.

    Do you have an idea what my be causing this discrepancy between your plugin and our phpinfo.php report?

    I updated my server PHP and now see more reasonable memory limits:

    Memory: 29.09 of 40 MB (73%) | WP LIMIT: 40 MB | IP (–redacted–) | PHP 5.6.6 @64BitOS

    Not sure what the issue was, but now I’m getting good information.

    Hi John,

    We get the memory use with: ini_get('memory_limit'). Sometimes this doesn’t show the amount of memory of your shared hosting, but of the whole server or even sometimes very large memory amounts that make no sense.
    We can’t do anything about this; only solution is to update as you have done. With latest versions of the server components it should be correctly displayed as you have noticed.

    Best regads,
