I'm interested in attempting to slim down my client in game, and the best way of doing that is better understanding what addons I have require the most memory to take. If I can find something that I deem not to be as useful if it takes up a chunk of memory, that would be great. Are there any addons that take up more memory than others?
heh... How about you just start with a clean interface folder and only add what's necessary. Then only add things back in as you need them. If you find something uses a lot of memory, rethink if you need that addon or try to find a replacement for it. We can't magically guess what addons you have, how much memory is being used, etc, etc, etc. :P Get PerformanceFu or OptionHouse to see your hogs.
Generally, dataminers are heavy, as are addons with a big database attached. But you really should post a list of your addons, or use performancefu (or similar) to check for resources used. But before you do that, you need to run with disembedded libraries.
I wasn't necessarily asking what mods of mine that I have installed would cause the most memory, more so what plugins for Fubar that are notorius for using memory. I could list the addons but I don't have the listing here with me at the moment.
I'm not sure how accurate Performance_Fu is, which I discovered last night and am a bit offset by that. Typically I've never seen any CT Mod take up memory listed on that plugin, but I disabled it thinking I don't need it, and wound up saving myself about 6mb worth of memory... I don't know if the plugin only picks up Ace2 mods or what, but if it's supposed to list everything then it seems incredibly inaccurate...
You can change how many addons PerformanceFu shows. Anyway, if you're using embedded libraries, anything you see will be inaccurate.
There are TONS of FuBar plugins available from multiple locations. Go with the rules that MoonWitch gave you, take my earlier suggestion of only using what you need, or just not worry about memory usage if you're not getting a performance hit. Static memory usage is meaningless anyhow.
