8.1.0.7 brings Performance Gains at around 2x when compared to 8.0.1.4 #823
Hello,

I am sure many who read this forum are aware of the changes to performance, in the 8.x series this started with minor changes in 8.0.1.5 and the first major performance change in 8.0.1.9, the last major performance change was in 8.1.0.4 with minor performance change up to 8.1.0.7

Today I copied my WoW directory, ran reset_healbot.bat and loaded up 8.0.1.4, made minimal changes and saved the skin, ran a few random groups and a raid, captured the CPU Usage.
Then I did the same with 8.1.0.7, but this time loading the saved skin back in, to have as near same settings as possible.

The following shows the number of milliseconds in every second that Healbot used the CPU, on the left is the old version and on the right is the new version.





I know not everyone has been happy going through the pain of a major rewrite, but maybe these gains make up for it!

This applies to the release of 8.2.5.4, not the beta

Usage has increased a little since 8.1.0.7, the next version 8.2.5.4 reduces usage and even improves on 8.1.0.7

Internal Timers and Updates have more affect in this version, to find an acceptable level, do the following
  • Move the slider all the way down to Less CPU, apply and remove a HoT multiple times
  • Move the slider all the way up to More CPU, apply and remove a HoT multiple time
Now you should have a feel for the update speed of healbot on your system (FPS plays a big part)
Move the slider to a position where you don't notice any delay in applying a HoT, this should be the best setting for most.
