How much lag is there in your opinion ?
What are you trying to do / measure ?
The file system has its own latency, if the file is written and not flushed, you will measure an additional delay, that may not be what you are looking for.
1. What is your data provider ?
2. Drawing is event driven and might not update
3. What is the % load on your CPU (other resources ? network & file system)
You can alternatively look to a measurement like explained here (somebody made an indicator for that):
NinjaTrader Support Forum - View Single Post - ZenFire lag
This will measure the time stamp of the data with your machine.
There are also a few threads on futures.io
Too often lagging is due to exceptional unefficient/badly coded indicators bringing your system down;
