AddonUsage  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.0.2
by: Gello [More]

This is an addon to compare the memory and CPU usage of your addons.

How to Use

To summon or dismiss the window:

  • /addonusage
  • or set up a key binding in the default key binding interface

A window will list each loaded addon alongside its memory usage, and CPU usage if enabled.
  • Column headers across the top can be clicked to sort by that column.
  • The total memory and CPU usage will be displayed at the bottom of their respective columns.
  • The window can be resized by the grip in the lower right corner.

In the lower left is a "CPU Usage" checkbox. Enabling this will turn on CPU profiling and display CPU times for each addon alongside their memory usage.

Beside the checkbox are three buttons, from left to right:
  • Reset: This will clean up memory and reset CPU usage tracking.
  • Update: This will update usage information.
  • Continuous Update: This acts as a Pause/Play button to automatically update usage every second.

Why to Use

If you're thinking of downloading this addon, you're probably trying to optimize your UI so it can run as efficiently as possible or you're experiencing fps loss and suspect an addon may be the cause.

I recommend, for the most part, ignoring the memory usage of addons unless you're on a low-end system. Even garbage memory creation (the memory creep active addons appear to be doing) is not really an issue if it happens slowly. If you watch closely you'll see the addons' memory usage reset back after a while. WoW's Lua implementation does this over time in a low-impact cleanup.

Instead you'll want to focus on the CPU usage of your addons. Everything your addons do, everything, happens between the frames rendered on your screen. The more work your addons are doing, the longer the game waits to render your next frame and your fps drops.

The best way to troubleshoot fps issues is to turn on CPU monitoring and go out and play. You can forget about it until later in the session. Bring up the window and see how they all behaved.

If you're experiencing a noticable fps drop in certain situations, like in one encounter in a raid (which is almost always graphic related and not addon related), or flying around looking at the map, or doing tradeskills, etc, you can hit Reset before you know the fps drop is about to hit. Then look for any abnormally high CPU usage among your addons.

The reason CPU monitoring isn't on by default is because the act of monitoring how much work your addons are doing causes a bit more work that will slow you down even more unless you're on a high end system or have few addons. You should only have CPU monitoring enabled when you're testing.

That said, some things to consider when looking at the numbers:
  • The percentages are all relative to each other. If you're spending 80% of your time making bandages, 10% of your time chatting and 10% of your time raiding, expect your tradeskill/inventory addons to share a bulk of the usage. If you notice in this situation a map addon taking up an abnormally huge share of CPU time, then that's something to investigate.
  • CPU usage is measured in milliseconds per second. The milliseconds of CPU time that the addon has accumulated divided by how long since CPU usage was last reset, or just after login if there has been no reset.
  • CPU usage per addon is taken from the in-game API and does not represent the whole story. It's possible for an addon to get some of its work blamed on another if libraries are involved, or it may get a lot of work to go unnoticed. Use these numbers as a guide only.
  • Remember to turn off CPU monitoring when you're done testing!

I have not tried the "CPU Usage" checkbox as I don't want to slow down my WoW as it says it does. I have tried the Reset, Update and Continuous Update buttons, but this does not change the memory field at all. Not sure what is going on but I have noticed that another addon called "SysMon" has the very same problem. Posting cropped screen shot of what I am seeing below.
Cheers!
Very curious!

If you mouseover the game menu button, does it report memory usage of a few addons? It's the button circled in red here:


If other memory-profiling addons are not working, I suspect the default UI is not going to register anything either. Some addon may be interfering with the whole process. In your shoes I would try disabling all addons, then confirm the default one is working again. If so, enable a few addons at a time until the behavior returns. It would narrow down what addon is causing it.

If the default memory usage isn't working after disabling all addons (you can disable them from the AddOns screen; no need to play with any files or delete anything), then there is a deeper problem. I would perhaps try to repair the client from the launcher.

If you find the cause let me know. I've never heard of that behavior and am curious what could cause it.

If you had a key binding setup in the past couple months, you may need to set it again sorry! (The 3.0 update had wrong bindings defined. They're correct in the latest version.)

Thanks for the report. I'll look into this.

edit: This is kind of hilarious. The name of the addon "2048" looks like a number to the API, so it's trying to reference the addon by its numeric index instead of its name.

This is fixable but it may require more than a quick edit. I've been wanting to redo this addon for some time. Maybe I can shove some other projects aside to write one up real quick this weekend.

btw it's okay to post comments on curse too. I get notifications by email now when a comment is made. I'll edit that bit in the curse description when this addon gets updated.

Hi,

I'm using the latest Curse version. I started getting this error when I typed /addonusage:


Code:
4x AddonUsage\AddonUsage-2.0.9.lua:39: AddOn index must be in the range of 1 to 473
[C]: in function `IsAddOnLoaded'
AddonUsage\AddonUsage-2.0.9.lua:39: in function `BuildList'
[string "*:OnShow"]:1: in function <[string "*:OnShow"]:1>
[C]: in function `SetShown'
AddonUsage\AddonUsage-2.0.9.lua:131: in function `?'
FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:4332: in function `ChatEdit_ParseText'
FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:4000: in function `ChatEdit_SendText'
FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:4036: in function `ChatEdit_OnEnterPressed'
[string "*:OnEnterPressed"]:1: in function <[string "*:OnEnterPressed"]:1>

Locals:
(*temporary) = "2048"
The window popup also no longer shows the addons themselves, it just says "Addon Name" in all the rows with 100%.

(Posting the report here since your description on Curse says to. )


*Edit: I think it's because I installed this addon? https://mods.curse.com/addons/wow/wow2048 Even when it's disabled the error still happens, but the timing makes sense.

oops. Updated my copy before patch but never posted a fix for all these months. Sorry!

New version just posted just fixes this. Nothing else changed (other than toc for 3.1--it was tested on PTR) so if you had it fixed already no need to redownload.

To make this work in 3.0.2:

open AddonUsage.xml, scroll down to the bottom and find:

FauxScrollFrame_OnVerticalScroll(16, AddonUsage.ScrollFrameUpdate)

change it to:

FauxScrollFrame_OnVerticalScroll(self, offset, 16, AddonUsage.ScrollFrameUpdate)

Save, and you're good to go!
