  • VPS Slow

    Hi there,

    running cca 10 MT4 terminals on my ForexVPS.net subsribed to the Basic+ VPS (1 CPU core2 GB RAM32 GB SSD) and things are really slowing down, need to install few more signals/terminals but its a struggle...
    Anyone has any experience with more terminals having opened and what sort of VPS i really need?

    Thanks very much.

    Wouldn't run more than 5 on that package personally

    Did you follow wills guide on optimisation of each mt4 terminal to minimise the cpu and memory load??

    You can upgrade to the next teir but if using multi core cpus, make sure you set each terminals affinity to a cpu core to stop lag when switching between clients

    Realistically keep your cpu load as small as possible, when big news hits the amount of resources required to run the mt4's increases massively, if it slow when the markets are quiet then you are way overloaded and pushing it too much for you cpu package

    Hope this helps

        hi ales,

        10 MT4 terminals (in their default state) is more than you can reasonably expect on a single CPU core plan VPS. 3 to 4 terminals per CPU core conservatively if you do not optimize each terminal will allow resource overhead for a very active market session. The main optimization step you need to do is hide all of the trading symbols you will never trade. This will save CPU usage and memory. If you optimize the terminals and you're not receiving data for a large number of symbols you can get a few more terminals. However this very much depends on the aggregate of all your terminals and on your exact configuration as for number of symbols you receiving data for, how many charts, how many indicators and EA's on each chart and whether those indicators and EA's are CPU intensive. Definitely do not run your CPU to persistently high as you need to leave room for especially active and volatile trading sessions which will require even more CPU. Monitor your CPU and RAM usage with Windows task manager (shortcut control shift escape).

          Appreciate it.
