Well, that's good news for Business growth Nick - well done!
40% in one week. Thats some crazy good uptake.
Phillip advised me on chat that Will is working around the clock to resolve the issue, and we all thank him profusely for this.
If there is anything any of us can do to assist just let us know. It's in all of our interests to have the signal copier as solid (moar solid?) as a rock.
Please throw as many blazingly fast servers at the problem as possible!!
Also - this is a separate suggestion. If this could be achieved without adding any overhead to the signal copying process, it would be extremely useful to have the ability to see the time delay between the trader -> signal copier and/or between signal copier -> my vps and/or between my vps -> broker.
At the moment we just have 'closure time' and 'slippage', but this could be anywhere between the trader and the broker, where there are a number of stops.
Take last nights issue for example, I initially thought it was either the trader himself who was closing trades during a massive liquidity spike, or the broker was overloaded and couldn't close trades in an acceptable time. It never occurred to me the issue could be the signal copier. But if there was an extra column or two in the analyitics page or history page, then I could have seen at a glance that the issue was actually from the ST server / signal copier, and not the trader or the broker.
I think another thing you/we might need is a status page. Like what web hosts have. This should be our first port of call when an issues arises, so we quickly view the status page - you might put up a notice 'temporary load on signal copier, to be resolved in 5min'.
Between these 2 things it might save you a few hundred support tickets?
Our upgrades didn't go as well as we hoped, we spent the entire weekend (and a big bucket of money) installing new hardware only to have some fairly large issues with the configuration once we plugged it all in.
It's not a linear upgrade, a layman expectation is that we can just buy more hardware, plug it in and our system is more robust. However a better analogy would be to compare our system to a petrol engine. There are dozens of variables that depend on each other to work efficiently. Just because you install a larger exhaust doesn't translate into a more powerful engine unless everything else is the motor is also configured and installed to provide the additional power.
So you can think of our system as an engine - with no instruction manual (nobody is doing what we're doing).
I'm extremely fortunate to be working with a gentleman that has the talent, expertise and work ethic to solve these problems. Give it up for Will!
You guys get all hot and sweaty over FX Viper, but WillT is just as talented, just with a different set of skills.
