Devtools, Scaffold, and Pagination on large table

I am using the sample employee database at https://github.com/datacharmer/test_db

There are 300,024 records in the employees table

I created a project and scaffolding with devtools.

However on the search, if you leave all the fields blank it returns "1/30003" but I noticed the Memory use shoots through the roof even tho it is only returning 10 rows to the screen.

It doesn't seem to account that it might be grabbing quite a few rows.

Watch out with paging, array and model adapters will fetch all records and THEN limit them. If you have many records, always use the query builder adapter!
