After the introduction of memory watching in 2.1.0, I have found that arkinventory (a highly configurable mod) was the largest soak of my cpu usage. I have tried a few other bag mods and while decent, none really offer the customization that ark inventory had.
Do any of you have solid experience with good bag mods that are also easy on memory and cpu usage?
cpu usage is only reported as high because you are using embed libraries and both ArkInventory and Baggins are high in the alphabetical order list, and as so are the first addons to load libraries, you will never get true numbers unless you use standalone libraries
Is both the memory and cpu use high? If it's just memory and the cpu use is fine, who cares? Memory is cheap, fast and it's better to cache/store data in memory than recalculate, reload, re-query, etc it all the time.
Any inventory or actionbar mod will have high CPU usage (some more or less than others) due to each button executing its own onupdate function. It's needed for checks on cooldowns, usable or not, in range, etc. The more buttons shown, the higher the load.
Anyway, you have to compare your bag mod performance to other bag mods, not just any other mod.
With standalone libs, ArkInventory was using 2.4MB at load time and could end up as high as 5.5MB for me. Baggins seems to use slightly less so far, and Baggins deals better with new incoming items due to being able to set up rules. I used Ark since it came out, but the latest issues with it made me try Baggins again (hadn't tried it in a while), and I think I'm staying with Baggins.
1. Does AI load first of you Ace2 addons? If so, it will be listed because it loads the ace2 libs first (and will be listed even tho other addons cause the usage)
2. You have a real old version of AI, AI shouldn't take any cpu if not visible.
3. Seeing that much usage while you just stand there... old comp?
I don't know how protractor works. One thing that is obvious tho is that the numbers adds up to ~100% and I doubt your comp use 100% cpu while playing wow. So, if it uses 50% cpu, then it would be more likely that AI use 38.2% of that. Have you tried any other profiling addon? Result from those?
My numbers with profiling turned on:
I presonally don't have any problems with AI atm (other than stuff placed in my bank 'standard bag' doesn't show a tooltip).Yes, AI does take a while when opening the bank, which isn't so very strange. It lags a bit the first time I open my bags in a session, then it's all fine.
Arkayenro posted an update earlier today, I haven't had time to try it yet tho (working).
