[SOLVED] Do plugins take up system resources?

Are plugins actively taking up CPU & RAM resources when installed and not in use? Or only when they are invoked?

 

Since, switching to Unraid, I've been uninstalling plugins after use and keeping my installed plugins to a minimum.

 

I've scoured the Wiki and Forums with no such luck in finding the answer that I am looking for.

Since the Unraid OS is in RAM, installed plugins are taking up RAM even when not invoked. Depending on the specific plugin, it may or may not have background processes that also take CPU.

That makes total sense now. I was thinking that they live on the array.

 

Thank you. I will up vote you when I get more reactions — just wished we'd get more of them.

 

P.S. - Wouldn't be great if we could toggle plugins on and off?
