Instead of using the
all method, which loads all records into memory, use the
pluck method to retrieve specific columns from the database.
For example, if you only need to retrieve the names/emails of all users, you can use the following code:
# Using pluck instead of all ❯ user_names = User.pluck(:name) ❯ user_emails = User.pluck(:email)
This will return an array of names and emails, which is more memory efficient than loading all of the user records into memory.
