Heya all got a problem.

When ever i try to logout and change characters, my game will freeze up for a good 10-30 secs.

during this time i can hear my HDD whirling and processing like it's been written/read from.

I've had this problem before but it seemed to fix it self and go away, but now it's back.

Anyone experience similar issues or have any idea whats going on?

Thanks

Could be anything really, however u kinda point it out yourself ^^

Check your HDD(s) with CDI or the likes and report back, maybe Gsmartcontrol if advanced user/wanna learn more about SMART yourself ^^

Yeah I already use Crystaldiskinfo and it says my HDD's health is 'Good'

And I don't get the problem on any other game / program, just WoW.

Try getting a defrag program and scan (perfect disk was my favorite back then, trail versions should be out there)

Anyways point of checking with a decent defragmenter program like Perfect Disk, is to check if some wow files are massively fragmented. (1 file with say 10k fragments, takes a few secs to read for the HDD ^^ )

If i remeber correctly, the build-in one in Win7/10 needs like 20% free space on a drive to be able to run at all.

Do you use DPSMate? It's writing its save file on logout.

Using a Radeon RX480 video card, latest drivers.

I'm not using DPSmate, but i suspect that it's some other addon doing the same thing, but not sure which one.

I've also just noticed it does the same thing when i use /ReloadUI command it will hang as well ... so possibly a rogue addon?

Thats easy to check, move the content of your addon folder into another folder and restart the game Smiley

Then they cant load, also making /reload or /reloadUI non-functioning (as no addons are loaded)

That said, reloading addons and UI (with said commands) do take a few secs to complete, even with the client on an decent SSD Smiley

If you made sure what Cocio21 said,
you can boil it down by using the addon "Warmup".

It will measure the memory usage and the load time of each addon.
Then look for some bully addons :-)

Whats this thing supposed to tell me exactly? is there any commands or other options?

Everything loads up the first time fine it's exiting or reloading the UI that's the problem, the addon doesn't really tell me anything.

Also the strange thing about it, like i mentioned it happened before and went away on it's own and in that time I haven't installed any different addons.

This is my Warmup.
Posting it because your Warmup looks a bit empty.





You can see that there are addons which take a lot of time to load up (1st column):
-BigWigsVG
-DPSMate
-IMBA
-Luna

and addons that take a lot of memory:
-Atlas
-AtlasLoot
-Lootlink
-BigWigsVG
-IMBA
-KTM
-LootTracker
-Luna
-WIM

The memory intensive addons are first suspects to cause a "freeze" on logout because they might write their data back to WTF files.
