11.3 How Templates Use System Memory

Templates are cached in memory for quick rendering speed. Each template consumes approximately 10 KB.

Similarly to the virtual search server cache, templates remain cached in memory until a period of inactivity has elapsed. The template is then dynamically removed from memory until its next use. The first time a template is accessed, therefore, is normally the slowest.

HINT:Too many templates in the template cache can consume a great deal of memory. Try to share templates across sites to minimize the impact on system memory resources.
