Kill your extraneous KTM CPU usage
Posted 25 May 2007 - 01:33 AM
So, on a whim, I banged out this mod this afternoon. What it does, basically, is disable KTM any time there's nothing interesting going on, reclaiming valuable CPU-per-frame time.
You can get it at http://files.wowace....MCPUManager.zip or through WowAceUpdater
It's basically about as fire-and-forget as they come. Install it and it does the rest. No config or anything to worry about.
On my machine, KTM consumes between 6% and 8% of my UI time per frame while CPU profiling is enabled. With the mod enabled, that drops to under 0.01%. This doesn't do anything to improve performance in combat, but you won't be wasting cycles sitting around Shattrath anymore, either.
Try it out, let me know what you think. Feedback is welcomed!

Please do watch for discrepancies, but I do expect that it's safe.

I use KTM, and am always looking for ways to improve my UI. This mod won't improve any performance while in combat, which is about the only time performance matters very much. So, are there any negatives to more code running in town such as miniscule wear and tear on your CPU or something? I know, I sound noob, but I like to understand this kind of stuff, and the best way to learn is to ask

Seemed to do pretty much what Antiarc said, just turns it off (window is still there, but nothing happening) until you're about to start the boss/trash. When people select a mob it kicks in I guess.
Thanks Antiarc! anything for a bit better performance running around Shattrath or GY running, etc.
