Hi there,

the last days i tried to optimize my phone with BBS. So in my log there are some entries like this

Quote:

android (): Wakeups: 66
Alarms: 0, Intent: android.intent.action.TIME_TICK
Alarms: 0, Intent: com.android.server.ThrottleManager.action.POLL
Alarms: 0, Intent: com.android.server.action.NETWORK_STATS_POLL
Alarms: -31, Intent: android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE
Alarms: -31, Intent: android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE
Alarms: -31, Intent: android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE
Alarms: 1, Intent: com.android.internal.policy.impl.Keyguard.LANDSCAP E_WAKE_TIME_LIMIT_EXPIRED
Alarms: 0, Intent: android.intent.action.DATE_CHANGED
Alarms: 0, Intent: edm.intent.action.elm.cleanrecords
Alarms: 0, Intent: com.android.server.NetworkTimeUpdateService.action .POLL
Alarms: 1, Intent: com.android.server.BatteryService.action.DORMANT_S TART
Alarms: 0, Intent: com.android.internal.policy.impl.PhoneWindowManage r.DELAYED_KEYGUARD
Alarms: 1, Intent: android.content.syncmanager.SYNC_ALARM
Alarms: 0, Intent: com.android.server.BatteryService.action.DORMANT_E ND

I tried to disable (i think it is called receiver in android development terms) the android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE application (which was MPE Tasks) in autostarts, but this did not bring down the APPWIDGET actions.

So my questions are:

- What causes the android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE alarms?
- Can these alarms be traced back to the widget or application?
- Is there an app that can do it?
- Or have i go through each widget and app manually and freeze them to see what causes them?

Can some developer who uses this please explain it to me?

Thanks and Greets

Hi Whitey,

widget alarms in your log are counted in negative! it's strange!

sometimes i experience this with BBS, might be fake alarms/readings

Sometimes positive, sometimes negative.

I've seen this also on some log.

Alarms: 5, Intent: android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE
Alarms: 5, Intent: android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE
Alarms: 5, Intent: android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE

I also wonder why

Update:

I tried aLogCat. But there are no entries for APPWIDGET_UPDATE in this logs.

Comeon, there must be a way to debug this and analyze what widget behaves bad.
