I limited in the php.ini the resource for a php process, so please help me a little why this process above can consume this amount of memory?

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; Resource Limits ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

max_execution_time = 30 ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
memory_limit = 8M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (8MB)
