X-Perl UnitFrames memory usage.
Return to board index
Asking here since I'm too lazy to get a Curse account for the single purpose of asking there. :)
Anyway, been thinking of getting X-Perl for a while now, but I'm worried about how much memory it'd use. Since I raid, I already use fairly intensive addons (well, intensive by the standards of my very poor laptop) like Grid, so obviously if it's something like 5MB+ I'm staying well away.
Hrm, I can try to remember to take a screenshot of the memory usage during a raid.
Got your screenshot for you last night:
That's a full raid in SSC. My Titan bars were auto-hidden, but I was likely getting somewhere between 50 and 90 FPS there.
Note that XPerl and XPerl_RaidFrames are separate. The top seven memory users in that screenshot are pretty much because of data gathering or databases. I have enough memory that I'm not terribly concerned with a few megs here or there.
I didn't get a shot in combat since I usually have something to do in raids and can't be standing around taking screenshots of Profiler. I imagine it would all go up a bit when stuff is changing; however, halfway through the night, I checked again and it had only gained like 100kb or so. It seems that if it does increase, it goes back down when it's done.
Thank you very much - 584k/160k memory is perfectly fine by my standards, considering Grid and CTRaid (thinking of replacing that with Ora2 to check, surprise surprise, memory usage) use up over 4MB alone. I think I'll test it tomorrow night. =)
Of course, I could solve a lot of problems by buying more RAM in the first place, but this laptop is terrible and the battery is completely dead, so I may as well buy a new (desktop!) machine - if I had the money for one. Le sigh.
The Teron Gorefiend fight in Black Temple gives me HELL. I got the
Girdle of Lordaeron's Fallen
on my first visit to him at minimum bid just for the sake of having it, and now I swap out the raid for someone else so I don't cause a wipe by excessive slowdown when I get the Shadow of Death. Luckily, I always get back in afterwards for the Gurtogg Bloodboil healfest.
