I'm experiencing strong performance issue on real-time plot using QCharts. I'm using 3 QChart within a mainwindow plotting data streamed from another thread. Data are streamed at 250Hz.
To get the mainwindow not freezed in release mode I have to set the refresh rate of the charts to about 10Hz. In debug the situation is even worse. The refresh rate should be about 3Hz to have a responsive GUI.
Points are added creating a QVector<QPointF> and then replace the entire vector into the QLineSeries, as suggested within the QLineSeries documentation.
Before that, I was using QCustomplot and everything worked fine without any performance issue. I have also profiled the code execution using Instruments and most of the main thread time is spent in the following function:
It is normal?
Since the moment I have moved from QCustomplot to QChart I'm not able to run the program in debug mode. I must run it in Profile adding debug symbols.
