The full effects of setting the DEBUG setting to True should be mentioned in the settings documentation. Specifically the caching of SQL queries leading to ever increasing memory use.

  • Has patch set
  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Ready for checkin

Adding this clarification about this particular feature is almost definitely a good idea. I know I've read it elsewhere, but it probably should live here too.

  • Resolution set to fixed

(In [7702]) Fixed #7059 -- Added a note to the settings documentation reminding users that when DEBUG=True, Django keeps a log of queries. Thanks for the suggestion, simonb.
