of RAM used, but a huge impact on processing time since each entry must
be compared against each log record. If you have lots and lots of
PageType/IndexAlias/Hide/Group/Ignore/Include/SearchEngine entries, they
will have a large impact on processing time since each one must be
processed for each log record, and the impact is linear depending on the
number of such entries.

takes however many bytes required for the string + linkage. Others
will also create a hash table entry of whatever size required for the
object being referenced. The size depends on the object, since each
object maintains different metrics particular to the object.
