Most problems are normally caused by badly coded indicators or application of many calculation intensive indicators. If you don't use tons of indicators per chart and make sure the ones you use are well coded, you can run really many workspaces. Probably more than you can keep track of, though I never tried how many is possible. You will be able to see in the task manager when you get close to the maximum...

I run my workspace with roughly 16 charts and some calculation intensive stuff with a CPU load well below 2,5% on average, using about 260MB RAM so if I extrapolate that I would get mad with all those charts


Thanks for that.

I should be fine to keep moving then. I only have several intensive indicators for my main single chart, on main workspace, and all other windows will be plain with EMA (plus volume for one or two) only. So seems like no sweat. Using two monitors and only one's windows will be switching.

No reason to go back to TS then. Can buy my NT full license soon if it handles it all so well.

Best regards,

Hello whg, as a novice can tell if a coded indicator okay?, I know nothing about programming.Tks .Felix

If there is a noticable impact on CPU or RAM usage without any obvious reason like massive calculations on every data update, it's probably not coded well.

Thanks for your help!

How could locate the difficulty indicator and how it could do to debug? is something a person without programming skills can do?

Yo guys.

Just got the message that the release of the new version of WindowTabs will be announced here on twitter.

Edit: Forgot to mention that it should be about mid December. So very soon I guess.


It is now 2014 and WindowTabs still doesn't allow you to save and reload your arrangement of tabbed windows, so you have to set it up again each time you start NinjaTrader. Feature coming soon, maybe ...

I also tried Window Docking Station (by Hoopoe ProGroup, found on cnet). It has a feature to load an arrangement of windows, however I have not been able to get this part of it to work properly. Emailed their support and no response.

Yes I've had that happen.

However, I now manually back up workspaces, chart templates and indicators to a flash drive regularly.

I also use the built-in NT backup process about once a week or so.

It has saved me hours of frustration several times.

I use SecondCopy it's an amazing backup tool... use it to back up individual versions of my code, or make backups of ninjatrader or other important things to multiple locations (including USB flash drive) when the files change. I never really found another backup tool quite like it.

Don't know if it's "just me" or if this has some basis in reality but it always seemed to me that the number 1 way I could reduce memory usage / increase performance on NT was to not use Range Charts (I have many charts open usually) I don't really have any problems with other chart types
