shPerformance (mem/fps/ms)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: r5.1
by: shUI [More]

shPerformance
An extremely light-weight and beautiful data broker addon that monitors system information and works right out of the box!

NOTE: I will not be updating or maintaining my secondary patch addon shMem. If you are interested in updating/maintaining it, send me a message.

Why use this addon instead of some of the other famous system monitors? Simple: elegance, ease of use, and efficiency. Other addons similar to shPerformance are extremely "busy" and highly inefficient when it comes to coding.

IMPORTANT: You must have a data broker display addon in order to enable this addon. I recommend Docking Station or you can find a list of other LDB display addons here. Changing the fonts of the tooltips is handled via a tooltip addon. I highly recommend using TipTac.

This addon displays and has the following options:

  • Frames per second (fps)
  • Latency (ms) (both HOME/local and WORLD ms)
  • Addon memory usage (mb or kb)
  • Option that allows sorting in two different ways: alphabetically or by descending memory usage
  • Option to change update period (seconds) and/or memory threshold (kb)
  • Option to change color gradient variable (for higher usage systems) and number of max addons displayed
I was completely baffled when I saw some coding of other author's data broker addons that displayed this information. My goals in creating this addon are:
  • Make the code as efficient as possible and to maintain < 30kb of memory usage
  • Be visually appealing and easy to read
  • Be updated in real time via the tooltip AND data broker text
  • Display relevant data that is important (NO FLUFF or Techno Babble)
  • Allow user to decide on sorting methods, memory threshold, and updating time
**For more technical information, details, and how to change settings please see LUA file within addon folder labeled shPerformance.lua or shMem.lua

Disclaimer: I want to thank Tekkub for his fantastic addon: picoFPS for inspiration and some code ideas, kudos!

Bug Reports and/or Requests:
All bug reports, requests (with this addon or another), errors, suggestions, and problems will be handled via the forum-comments page.

r5.1
- Code clean up of deprecated items
- Fixed OnUpdate/OnEnter event handlers to properly render tooltip in right place
-----------------------
r5.0
- Updated minor issue with getting addon list and putting into table to manipulate
- TOC Bump
-----------------------
r4.1
- TOC Bump
-----------------------
r4.0
- ToC bump: got it right this time and set to 50001
- Optimized code with a few new tricks!
------------------------
r3.0
- ToC bump -> 5.0
- Should be working fine for MoP
------------------------
r2.6b
- ToC bump -> 4.3
-------------------------
r2.6a
- ToC bump
-------------------------
r2.6
- TOC update to 4.1
- Minor improvement in OnUpdate function
--------------------------
r2.5
- More optimizations to code, specifically removed the redundant IsAddOnLoaded() function call
- ADDED: Local/Home ms to latency tooltip
- Changed how the latency LDB text was display to show XXms/XX(w) ms instead of the stupid hyphen
--------------------------
r2.4
- Big code clean up and localized a lot of code
- You gotta ask yourself in LUA, are you local ;) -> Thanks Treeston
---------------------------
r2.3
- Changed the latency db text to make it look better and clearly decipher between world and local ms
---------------------------
r2.2
- Cleaned up some code and reduced the coloring of unimportant tooltip items
- ADDED: latency for both HOME and WORLD server ms to show in real time on databroker
----------------------------
r2.1
- Cleaned up unused functions
- REMOVED formatMem2 function and integrated it into formatMem
-----------------------------
r2.0
- Cleaned up coding and added shMem LDB as a separate module
- ADDED code to see if shMem is loaded and if it is loaded, to only show memory detailed tooltip over shMem LDB instead of shPerformance LDB (MUST have both addons installed - as separate addon folders)
------------------------------
r1.1
- Small update to ToC file and removed the ##Version attribute
- Fixed up some function names so I can work on big update...
------------------------------
r1 - new updating system (newer than v8.1)
- REMOVED the shMem data broker completely (again, sigh I know). But it will run better this way with a lot less lag. If you really want to see your memory usage, just hover over and see the tooltip.
- ADDED line at bottom of tooltip to show how many addons are "hidden" (not above the memory threshold) and what the total amount of memory used for those addons.
- Optimized some more code
-------------------------------
v8.1
- ADDED the shMem broker back
- After lots of hours trying to find a work around for the jittering/fps decrease, I have figured out a way to decrease it by a lot. NOTE: for having an addon like this calls the UpdateAddOnMemoryUsage() function a lot, it's natural to have some cpu/memory usage. I minimized that by making the broker update slower than if you were hovered over it.
- Optimized lots of code with major rewrites
--------------------------------
v8.0
- MAJOR update: overhauled OnUpdate methods for LDB's (this was causing too many performance issues and jittering on lots of computers)
- REMOVED memory LDB and added all pertaining information to ONLY display on FPS broker
- Optimized some more code to fit the changes
- REMOVED "wantOnClickUpdating", thought the addon was getting too "busy" with too many options. Now the tooltip will ALWAYS update in real time and onclick. However, OnUpdate now doesn't call the UpdateAddOnMemoryUsage() and iterates over a table (saving a lot of CPU cycles). This will only happen by hovering over the LDB
- REMOVED option to show TOTAL UI memory in LDB (see above)
----------------------------------
v6.9
- Fixed minor error when using the coloring option and cleaned up initial addon table
-----------------------------------
v6.8
- Fixed color scheme to show coloring of addon names based on the ToC file or can use the coloring option
-----------------------------------
v6.7
- Optimized some small snippets of code
- Returned to wantonclickupdating = false default so the tooltip updates in real time (per popular demand)
-----------------------------------
v6.5
- Updated ToC for 4.0.1
------------------------------------
v6.3
- Fixed bug that was not allowing the fps and latency databroker objects to update correctly
------------------------------------
v6.2
- Minor update: reset a bunch of defaults to take less memory and fix the jittering that some people are having (just a temporary fix)
- Fixed some code to allow the broker object to keep updating every 2 seconds and not based on the UPDATEPERIOD variable
-------------------------------------
v6.1
- Removed second set of icons (no one wanted them)
- Updated code and added IsAddOnLoaded() function call to clean up and optimize
- Updated ToC file
--------------------------------------
v6.0
- Updated tooltip to make it display shPerformance addon memory usage by itself at the bottom!
- ADDED fps and latency display on tooltip itself for users who don't want to turn on the other databroker objects
- ADDED option to turn off coloring of the addon names (but the memory usage stays the same)
- Updated some function calls and minor cleanup of code
---------------------------------------
v5.1
- Updated TOC file
- Added another set of icons that can be changed via lua file (check for easy instructions)
- Fixed some small issues with formatting
---------------------------------------
v5.0
- Updated TOC a bit
- Due to popular demand, the default sorting method is back to alpha order
- Fixed the formatter to change 1000kb to 1.0mb (instead of < 1024)
----------------------------------------
v4.9
- Updated TOC finally
- Changed some redundant local variable calls and tried to clean up some code
- Changed default update time to every 1 second instead of 2 seconds
- Changed memory threshold back up to 60kb
-----------------------------------------

v4.8
- Changed default values for better optimization
-----------------------------------------
v4.7
- Made some more locals..optimized
------------------------------------------
v4.6
- Further optimized coding and got rid of some unnecessary global calls
------------------------------------------
v4.5
- Cosmetic changes and visual optimization
- Default, out of the box, changes to match user's needs
------------------------------------------
v4.4
- Updated garbage collecting methods and optimized function calls
- Added a more appealing garbage collecting display at the bottom of tooltip
- Added error handling if LibStub is not installed
------------------------------------------
v4.3
- Fixed information of options in lua file to make a bit more sense
- Added color gradient and max addon displaye options (CHECK LUA FILE)
- Added "Garbage churn" display similar to picoFPS' option at bottom of tooltip
-------------------------------------------
v4.2
- Removed garbage collection when OnLeave event is triggered
--------------------------------------------
v4.0
- Added garbage collection amount into chatframe when databroker clicked
- Cosmetic and visual changes to make it a bit easier to read
- COMPLETELY revamped several functions and optimized even further than before, should see a big change in overall efficiency.
--------------------------------------------
v3.2
- Added some color changes to mem list
- Optimized onclick function to call onenter function, reduces mem usage by 25%
--------------------------------------------
v3.1
- Added TOTAL UI memory usage line in shMem tooltip
- Cosmetic coloring of items
- Optimized "OnEnter" and "OnClick": external function calls
--------------------------------------------
v2.3
- Fixed default settings to emulate what most people have.

v2.0
- Added boolean statement in config section of shPerformance.lua: IF YOU WANT to disable automatic updating of tooltip (and possible frame 'stuttering' just set this boolean value to "true"
--------------------------------------------
v1.2
- Changed UPDATEPERIOD from 0.5 seconds to 2 seconds to improve performance on some machines
NOTE: this can always be changed manually by changing the UPDATEPERIOD variable at top of LUA file
--------------------------------------------
v1.1
- Added icons for each separate broker
- Fixed ToC file up a bit
- New screenshots
- Fixed some wording to make it consistent with rest of tootips

on a side note why is it the game menu memory usage is sometimes off from your addon?

From my reading and research, LDB stands for LibDataBroker and you can read more about it on Tekkub's LDB page. I personally don't like FuBar b/c it's written with a lot of fluff and just the display part of it (NOT including any addons) runs with 2mb of memory usage. LDB, and most of Tekkub's coding, is extremely efficient. LDB offers the same thing as fubar, just more efficient. I chose to use this foundation in writing this addon.

It is already in there. At the bottom of the tooltip you'll see "Default memory usage". Check it out bud.

@Skylinee: Fair enough, I'm about to update the addon to allow for SORTING by memory usage and I will also fix that problem.

@tintingurl: thanks for the compliments! Hope you guys like future updates and look out for some more addons by me in the future.

Since the latest update manual GarbageCollect doesn't seem to be working properly. Atleast there's no chat print when clicking the plugin and i don't see any decrease in the memory used by addons.

I am so loving this addon See i was always using fubar also but man took a lot of memory to use it and its extras. With broker addons now it cut down my memory addon usage a lot

The main reason i never switched was because i liked furbar's Performance and some others.
