I just had some problems with an update exhausting my memory. But I already had the PHP memory limit at 512 MB, and I had to take it up to 1024 MB! I know this is relative but, is this too much?
How can I know if this is within normal range or if I should be working to improve it?
This is the site for a newspaper in a small province (~10 posts/day). After the latest update, the database is at ~600mb.
