That is an excellent question.... I have given the files and instructions to NT Support over a year ago...I cannot say for sure, but I think that they have looked. The platform has become much much better over the past year. Of course if you are not pushing it like real users do, you probably do not see the issues. Having said that, you can modify the clean start bat file to remove or not remove whichever directories that you see fit for your use. Even if you remove no directories, it will start NT in High Priority mode so that should help as well. It takes no more effort to use this routine than to start NT with their icon.

Thanks
Bob

We had cache issues that were resolved many versions ago, there should be no reason to delete your cache. The cache is designed to reduce the amount of historical data that is requested from a server thus making load time more efficient. If anyone does have memory issues, this should be escalated to our support team for further analysis.

Thanks. This really helps with startup. But didn't fix the issue with lag. NT8 has processing delays past 100 ticks per second. Noticeable on the ES at open, close or any burst of high volume comes in.

If you are experiencing lag during high volume times, this is usually attributable to a poorly written script/indicator. We have tools to help identify such culprit. Please reach out to our support team as they can provide further instructions to help isolate the issue and resolve your issue.

Also you can open up a NinjaScript Output window and right click it to view the NinjaScript Utilization Monitor. It shows you which indicators are using the most CPU. You wouldn't believe it but rendering candlesticks use a lot of CPU/GPU.

I use the Util Monitor.... Time is not exactly correlated to memory use. I would really like to see memory allocations by indicator if possible.

BTW... I have been in PC and Networking Hell for the past 2 weeks... I finally tracked it down to a cable that had gone faulty.... I cannot explain why, but my speeds were great, but I could not download without CRC errors... I found a tool called Ping Plotter that helped me to trace it....


Thanks a lot for responding...
Bob
