Performance - Frequent update of PB access rights to blocks

Guest shared this bug 13 months ago

Game version: 1.200.032

Method: MyGridTerminalSystem.UpdateGridBlocksOwnership

Called from MyProgrammableBlock.RunSandboxedProgramAction, which can be frequent on multiplayer servers with PBs triggered a lot.

The ownerID is the owner of the programmable block. Since block and PB ownership changes rarely, frequent calls can be inhibited.

What I did is just allowing for a call every 4-5 seconds, skipping the rest of them. It eliminates most of the CPU load with a minimal delay of access right updates after ownership changes as a potential side effect. There may be a better (proper) fix which invalidates the cache on relevant ownership changes.

See the UpdateGridBlocksOwnershipPrefix patch method of MyGridTerminalSystemPatch in
