glfwJoystickPresent takes too much time
« on: August 14, 2015, 14:40:32 »
In order to support controller hot-plugging I was cheking for present joysticks once per frame (now I do it once every second) and I realized that my frames per second droped from 4 digit numbers to a few 30 to 40.

I traked the isue to the glfwJoystickPresent call and benchmarked-it; now even with the every second fix y have small hickups every (...) second.

Fun fact, after I plug the first controller the cost almost disapears, I am using Windows 10, Inpiron 15 5000 series and a XBOXONE controller.

Is this a normal expected behaviour?

Not sure. I tested this:

Code: [Select]
for ( int i = 0; i < GLFW_JOYSTICK_LAST; i++ ) {
glfwJoystickPresent(i);
}
it takes ~100μs on my machine (Windows 10). glfwJoystickPresent is calling this function on Windows (checks if it returns JOYERR_NOERROR).

It must be my machine then, my code is roughly the same as yours; I'll take my precautions

Code: [Select]
for (int i = 0; i < joysticks.length; i++)
    joysticks[i].present = glfwJoystickPresent(i) == GL_TRUE;
