Using this tool, you can find culprits in your World of Warcraft interface, that are slowing down the overall performance.
Each polling type is not initialised, and will thus not take up resources, until you select it in the drop down menu.
And nothing is initialised at all until you open the addon using the slash command.
Some of the polling methods will have an overhead once initialised, an example are the Frame OnEvent/OnUpdate modules.
They will hook many frames in your interface, and may slow things down a little. So it's best to reload the UI when done testing.
Once a polling method has been initialised, you can close the window, and it will still gather data in the background.
Slash command for this tool is "/iu".
Polling Modules (8)
Currently, eight polling moduels exists for this addon.
<Addon Memory Usage>

<Addon CPU Usage>

<Addon Spam by Prefix>
Shows how many addon messages each addon does.
<Addon Spam by Player>
Shows how many addon messages you get from who.
<Addon Spam by Channel>
Shows how many addon messages you get per channel.
Shows how many times each event is dispatched to a frame.
<Frame OnEvent Usage>
Hooks all frames in the user interface that has an "OnEvent" script, and measures how much time they spend running this function.
<Frame OnUpdate Usage>
Hooks all frames in the user interface that has an "OnUpdate" script, and measures how much time they spend running this function.
Interface Usage Changes | 2010 Feb 27
- Changed the TOC version to 30300 for the 3.3 patch.
Interface Usage Changes | 2009 May 24
- The FrameScript modules (OnUpdate/OnEvent) now has a new column showing how many times the script function was called.
- Added three new polls, "Addon Spam by Prefix", "Addon Spam by Player" and "Addon Spam by Channel". They basically do the same, but having three, makes it easier to narrow down where the spam comes from.
- No polling module is initialised by default anymore, you have to select one from the drop down list.
- Modules: Default column alignment changed from "LEFT" to "RIGHT".
- Modules: Column offsets are now based on the previous column's offset, instead of zero.
