In much the same way as in TeX:
tracingstats := 1;
My executable reports the following:
300i (input stack),
1500p (param stack),
In MP, There are a number of other stack sizes that are not reported.
A portion of those are related to font making and reading, but not all.
write_files (simultaneous "write" files)
read_files (simultaneous "readfrom" files)
max_in_open (simultaneous "input" files)
path_size (maximum number of knots between breakpoints of a path)
font_size (fonts/font memory for labels)
There is a similar (but slightly different) list for MF, of course.
