Memory Meter


Logs memory usage as users browse your website providing latest logs and flagged logs (when memory usage is over specific percentages).

For users who have specific capabilities (e.g. administrators) a memory meter is shown in the admin bar showing memory usage as the website and dashboard is navigated and includes several configuration options.


  • Logs memory usage as users browse the website/dashboard
  • Displays current memory usage by file size
  • Displays current memory usage by percentage
  • Memory limit display
  • PHP memory limit display
  • PHP max execution time display
  • WP memory limit display
  • WP max memory limit display
  • Latest memory usage logs
  • Flagged memory usage logs
  • Memory usage page request logs for all users, instead of just users with manage_options capability (Premium)
  • Memory usage shown in JS console (Premium)


After installation memory usage will be logged for any user as they browse the website and dashboard, you can see the logs via the Memory Meter menu in the WordPress dashboard. Note that page request information is only logged for users with the manage_options capability in the free version of this plugin. The premium version logs page request information for all users regardless of their capability.

By default the memory meter will be shown in the admin bar if you are logged in as user with the manage_options capability such as an administrator (the capability can be modified if required, see the configuration tab via the Memory Meter page).

In this scenario you will see the meter in the admin bar at the top of your WordPress dashboard and the frontend of your website. Note that there is a user profile setting in WordPress to enable the admin bar, it is enabled by default, if this is not enabled you will not be able to view the memory meter in the admin bar.

If you hover over the memory meter you will see a number of options, such as logs and configuration. In addition to the admin bar, a menu item is included in your WordPress dashboard to give access to the logs, confirguration, etc.

Note that the memory meter doesn’t need to be displayed to ensure memory usage is logged, this is done regardless of whether the memory meter is being displayed.

BETA Functionality

We may occasionally include BETA functionality, this is highlighted with a (BETA) label. Functionality with this label should be used with caution and is only recommended to be tested on a staging/development environment. The functionality is included so users can test the functionality/provide feedback before it becomes stable, at which point the (BETA) label will be removed. Note that there may be occasions where BETA functionality is determined unsuitable for use and removed entirely.


If you are using any form of caching then it is recommended that the cache lifespan/expiry should be set to 10 hours or less. This is recommended by most major caching solutions to avoid potential issues with WordPress nonces.

Screen Sizes

  • Frontend: Where elements may be displayed on the frontend they will fit within the screen width
  • Backend: Where interfaces may be displayed it is recommended to use a desktop computer with a resolution of 1920×1080 or higher, for lower resolutions any interfaces will attempt to fit within the screen width but some elements may be close together and/or larger than the screen width


We generally recommend Loco Translate to translate and/or adapt text strings within this product.

Perguntas frequentes

Where can I find the memory meter?

See the usage information above.

How do I change the memory file size to KB or GB rather than MB?

You can use the wpmm_memory_meter_file_size_format filter hook.

What percentage of memory usage will make the meter change color?

When your website is using greater than 75% of allocated memory the meter will change to orange (warning), if greater than 90% it will change to red (bad). If you want to change these default percentages you can use the wpmm_memory_meter_memory_usage_percentage_warning and wpmm_memory_meter_memory_usage_percentage_bad filter hooks.

Who can see the memory meter/can I make it visible to specific users?

The memory meter displays by default in the admin bar for any user with the manage_options capability, which is usually administrators. You can change the capability required to display the memory meter by using the wpmm_memory_meter_capability filter hook. Note that this filter hook does not effect memory usage logging, and the memory meter being displayed or not doesn’t effect memory usage logging.

Can I disable the memory meter colors?

Yes, you can disable the colors using the wpmm_memory_meter_memory_usage_colors filter hook.

Can I disable logs?

Yes, you can disable the logs using the wpmm_memory_meter_logs filter hook.

I was looking for a simple WP stats plugin and found this. It was nice and i liked it. Definitely 5 stars from me! Thanks. P.S. Bad reviews can be avoided if the PRO features and upgrade necessity is mentioned in detail on the plugin’s page.

You have to pay for the service to see what pages are using what memory. Free version is not super helpful.
