Performance issues

Postby cruzer » Thu Mar 12, 2020 9:10 am

If P3D is left static (aircraft parked and shutdown after a flight), I see a significant FPS drop from 30-40 to around 10 every 3 or seconds. This occurs if I carry out a subsequent flight after being parked for a few hours. A shutdown and reboot of P3D fixes the stutter but would like to understand what is causing it.
I am running the latest hotfix and have cleared shader folder.

@cruzer,
"If P3D is left static (aircraft parked and shutdown after a flight), I see a significant FPS drop from 30-40 to around 10 every 3 or seconds."

Is your setup using AI Traffic (default or payware)?
Which Add-ons are you using (weather, aircraft, scenery etc)?
Which OS are you using?
Which P3Dv.xxx are you using?

What are your system specs?

Hi there, I’ve just switched over to freeware AI. I use AIG manager although issue also occurred when using Ultimate Traffic Live. I’m running 4.5 with the latest hotfix and scenery add ons include Orbx, flytampa, MSFG, flightbeam and freeware. It doesn’t matter which scenery or aircraft I’m using, it happens with all (mainly use complex addon aircraft such as a2a/PMDG/FSlabs). I’m also usually using chaseplane and active sky, however, I disabled chaseplane and there was no change. My system is fairly capable, it has the following on Win 10 platform:
i78700
32GB DDR4
GeForce RTX2080
970 Evo Plus SSD
Z390 M/B
750w power
Liquid cooling
ASUS ROG PG348Q.

Regards,

Ross

Is your default flight the LM F22 at KVPS?

Yes it is and always has been.
I do not fly segments.
I reboot PC after each flight.
No problems.

What I would suggest is to test using the default P3D F22 to fly into KVPS and do your test without Add-ons (weather programs etc) and without AI traffic.

Okay, so disabling all add-ons and AI traffic made no change.

The issue will present itself even on a fresh start if it sits idle for 15-20 minutes.

I even ran a test with the sliders all dialed down but I still get 5-6 fps.

Ross

Did you test with the P3D F22 as suggested?

Yes indeed, the performance has actually decreased since my first post.

@cruzer,

After a PC reboot..
When your P3D default flight starts (F22 at KVPS)
No Add-ons running
Are you in Windowed or Full screen mode?
Are your FPS locked at 29 or Unlimited?
How many monitors in your setup?

Are you seeing this problem which you previously reported?:

"If P3D is left static (aircraft parked and shutdown after a flight), I see a significant FPS drop from 30-40 to around 10 every 3 or seconds."

Is this you Performance issue?

Ok so tried full reboot with the default flight and I've disabled all add-ons.
I've left the F22 sitting running for over an hour.
Full screen mode with single monitor and FPS set to unlimited it appears performance is now stable at 40-50 fps.
I'm thinking Active sky may have been running in previous test though.
