8 - Client lagging/freezing

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Load Addon
2. Let the Boss Ready addon showed when combat starts (use /br combat)
3. Enter combat/let your party enter combat

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I experience serious lagging/little freezes when combat starts with me having BR addon showed in combat. If I use /br combat to hide addon when I or my party enters combat, lags suddenly will stop.

What version of the product are you using?

Do you have an error log of what happened?

Please provide any additional information below.
I can't use /br hide to hide it manually. It will be nice to have "minimap" button also to show/hide/configure Boss Ready addon.

    Indeed there are issues with the amount of data particularly health & mana changes being processed by the client. At various points it has been suggested that Client optimisations for this will be available hopefully in time for patch 1.6.1 until then I strongly recommend using the option to hide in combat.

    In fact I may just remove the option to display the addon in combat as the performance of the v1.6 client is unacceptable.
