Profiling android glide loader library
In this review we spend time profiling android glide loader library using the traceview, memory monitor & GPU render profiling tools.
Here we observe four background threads all running at the same time resulting in much quicker image loading. Also note the lack of significant spaces in the main ui thread which translates into a good performance.
Starts at consuming in the region of 10 MB, then after scrolling reaches a max in the region of 24 MB. After triggering a garbage collection (GC) the memory consumed drops down to 19.5 MB.
The key point to note here is the green horizontal line which represents 16 ms. Any frames that are higher than the horizontal green line can result in application jitter.
Note at the left hand side there are a number of sequential frames all taking longer than 16 ms to render.
In the top left & centre thumbnails there is a corruption resulting in more than one image in the thumbnail.
