|Priority||normal||Severity||minor||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||184.108.40.206|
|Summary||0003089: "Monitor" pane in Logbook uses lots of CPU|
|Description||The "Monitor" is intended to show diagnostic information from the application. It has largely the same intent as the "Logfile" tab, some differences in its implementation:|
The use of a rich edit control for logging is not a good design. The control limits itself to displaying about 16K of data. When a new string is added to the control, the length of the data in the control is checked. If it is more than 16K, data is removed from the beginning of the control, one line at a time, until the length is less than 16K. Then, the new data is added.
While the control isn't used by most users, the code to drive it is always active. Any message logged by the application -- debug trace, regular trace, timing trace -- is always added to the control and the control's content pruned each time, even when the window isn't visible. The management of the control can take a tremendous amount of CPU and memory. When the control is visible, it updates and repaints constantly. For each string added to it, it will redraw for the added string, but also redraw once for each string remove in order to replace the added string.
Because the window has a drastic negative effect on the product and is a subset of the functionality offered by the Logfile tab, we should remove it.
|Steps To Reproduce||1) Start up the Logbook.|
2) Be sure that you are not connected to a DX Cluster
3) Fire up Task Manager. Monitor the Logbook's CPU usage.
4) Use the "Monitor" command in the "View" menu to show the "Monitor" pane
5) Connect to a DX cluster.
BUG#1) Performance of the Logbook is terrible. The DX Cluster window takes a very long time to fill or repaint, and the Monitor tab is very busy redrawing itself.
6) Find HRDLogbook.EXE in the details view of the Task Manager.
BUG#2) The process will be using 100% of a CPU core due to the management of the Monitor tab. It'll be using more CPU than that, of course, for other work ... but pegging a CPU for this window just isn't worth the cost.

fixed with this checkin:
CPU at 0%-0.1% with and without Cluster connection.
