Haven't looked into this. From my experiences, the .NET GC tends to be pretty generous with memory allocation, especially with ServerGC, so C# programs usually have a larger memory footprint than say Go or NodeJS. I don't have enough experience with PHP but it would definitely be interesting to look into.

You could use memory_get_peak_usage or memory_get_usage to check how much memory is used in PHP. Just add the first one at the end of script.
