This is not a topic I know much or anything really about, so please keep that in mind while reading this post.
I’m using the latest Hugo release. A pattern I’ve been noticing over the last couple of big releases, perhaps since v0.50+, is that Hugo has become more memory intense.
What I mean by this is that when I run hugo server, my laptop fans kick into gear, and it takes a lot of time for the page to load. Once the page has loaded and I change something in the code, I usually need to stop hugo server and run it again as the server seems to stall.
Opening up several pages on my project at the same time doesn’t work. They just won’t load. It’s the loading spinner that appears in the tabs on Chrome.
My code has remained relatively the same over these releases. There are inefficiencies in my code for sure, but this has not been an issue before.
Template Metrics (I’ve deleted the stuff that doesn’t have a significant duration):

I’m using a MacBook Pro for development.
When running hugo server, this is what Activity Monitor shows:
**CPU** Process name: hugo % CPU: 372,8 CPU time: 8:31,39 **Memory** Process name: hugo Memory: 1,16 GB
I can’t share my project which I appreciate makes this difficult to troubleshoot. Just wondering if this is normal Hugo behaviour and the problem are my templates? Thanks.
