  • I’m trying to trim down my database calls to lower my CPU usage and I found that WordPress is sending the following query on every page load:

    [0] => SELECT option_value FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = 'stats_url' LIMIT 1<br />
                [1] => 0.001290870666504<br />
                [2] => require, require_once, require_once, require_once, include_once, get_option

    My wp_options table doesn’t have this at all, i.e., the above query returns an empty rowset.

    Anyone here know what this is?
