Numeric Constants

  • TIME_FPS = 0 — Frames per second.
  • TIME_PROCESS = 1 — Time it took to complete one frame.
  • TIME_PHYSICS_PROCESS = 2 — Time it took to complete one physics frame.
  • MEMORY_STATIC = 3 — Static memory currently used, in bytes. Not available in release builds.
  • MEMORY_DYNAMIC = 4 — Dynamic memory currently used, in bytes. Not available in release builds.

Description

This class provides access to a number of different monitors related to performance, such as memory usage, draw calls, and FPS. These are the same as the values displayed in the Monitor tab in the editor’s Debugger panel. By using the get_monitor method of this class, you can access this data from your code. Note that a few of these monitors are only available in debug mode and will always return 0 when used in a release build.

Many of these monitors are not updated in real-time, so there may be a short delay between changes.

Member Function Description

  • float get_monitor ( int monitor ) const

Returns the value of one of the available monitors. You should provide one of this class’s constants as the argument, like this:

print(Performance.get_monitor(Performance.TIME_FPS)) # Prints the FPS to the console
