This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

AddonSpamFu is an Addon for monitoring the addoncommunication channels for guild, raid, group, bg &whisper.

Poorly written Addons often send too much unneeded messages over the wire.

AddonSpamFU helps you to find , which addons produce the most traffic and what kind of information they send.

When an Addon doesn't use its original name as a prefix, like many Ace-Comm-2.0 Addons do, ASFU trys to print the addonname instead of a cryptic prefix.
This only works if the Prefix<-> Addonname relationship is in the Database already.
These Addons are marked with a suffix (_KNOWN) / colored in greeen

Attention: ASFU is deprecated and was replaced with the broker-based Spamalyzer. http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/spamalyzer.aspx. Updates will only happen for that Addon

If you know the addon that is currently named UNKNOWN_(Prefix) (yellow color) or find an Addon that isn't in the List already (colored in red) , drop me a note or feel free to add it to the svn-repo yourself.

Be carefully when you try to interpret the data asfu gives you, some addons like LibHealcomm need to send a lot of messages, but that wont necessarily cause disconnects /fps drops & wont kill your cat.
Too much traffic isnt needed, but by default, the wowserver tends to send a lot more than any addon ever will ;)
