big issue - save workspace

Postby Smoky » 27 Aug 2019

I use a big workspace about 100 Mo, i make my own log on every incoming tick and when no ticks i use RecalcLastBarAfter(1);

then i have big log file, but sometime for 30 secondes or more i have nothing in my log ! I i have search a bug in my code but never find ...

Today i undestand, when i use MC "save workspace" all incomming tick stop, timer RecalcLastBarAfter(1) stop during all save process AND with auto-trading ON no order are sent !

it's a realy big issue, i only have a workaround, save my workspace at the end of my trading day ... if MC hang i will lost my drawing.


use Version: MultiCharts64 Version 12.0 Release (Build 18184) (edit)

Smoky,

To save the current state it is required to freeze it. When there is a lot of data – it takes more time.
We recommend the following:
- split the workspace into several smaller workspaces;
- divide your workspace into auto trading and informational workspaces;
- avoid using any other windows except auto trading charts in the workspace dedicated for trading;
- place Scanner windows with large number of instruments into separate workspaces.

Smoky,

Please send us the following files to support@multicharts.com so that we could investigate this behaviour on our end:
1. The workspace where the issue is reproduced.
2. Export of used symbols (with data) from QuoteManager in .qmd archive:
http://www.multicharts.com/trading-soft ... rting_Data
3. The exported scripts with all dependent functions that are used on the workspace, if possible. You can export them in read-only (SEF) format:
