Bug Data : MultiChart 5.0 Version 5.0 Beta 5 (Build 2199)

Postby Guest » 06 Apr 2009

Hi ,


1/ Please find attached 2 log, I made as I was downloading the EURUSD
from TS 8 server :

- The first Log is made using Multichart 4.0

- The second log is made using Multichart 5.0 Beta 5 (Build 2199)


2/ Please compare the 2 log at the date of 5/14/2008

On the The first Log (made using Multichart 4.0) you get more than 5647 quotes :

[04/06/2009 16:31:04] Data request for EURUSD 1 Minute Trade [ 05/14/2008 04:00:00 - 05/15/2008 03:59:00 ] (Id= 349)
[04/06/2009 16:31:04] Sending EURUSD 1 Minute Trade history to data server: 5647 quotes downloaded (Id= 349)
[04/06/2009 16:31:05] Data request for EURUSD 1 Minute Trade [ 05/13/2008 04:00:00 - 05/14/2008 03:59:00 ] (Id= 350)
[04/06/2009 16:31:05] Sending EURUSD 1 Minute Trade history to data server: 5654 quotes downloaded (Id= 350)


On the The second log (made using Multichart 5.0 Beta 5 (Build 2199)):
You get only 2825 Quotes plus 1412 Quotes downloaded = 4234 Quotes Only . A part of the quote are not downloaded,
If you check all the log, a lot of quotes don't seem downloaded


[04/06/2009 16:44:06] Data request for EURUSD 1 Minute Trade [ 05/14/2008 21:00:00 - 05/15/2008 20:59:00 ] (Id= 240)
[04/06/2009 16:44:06] Sending EURUSD 1 Minute Trade history to data server: 2825 quotes downloaded (Id= 240)
[04/06/2009 16:44:10] Sending EURUSD 1 Minute Trade history to data server: 1412 quotes downloaded (Id= 240)
[04/06/2009 16:44:10] Data request for EURUSD 1 Minute Trade [ 05/13/2008 21:00:00 - 05/14/2008 20:59:00 ] (Id= 241)
[04/06/2009 16:44:10] Sending EURUSD 1 Minute Trade history to data server: 2826 quotes downloaded (Id= 241)
[04/06/2009 16:44:13] Sending EURUSD 1 Minute Trade history to data server: 1410 quotes downloaded (Id= 241)


1/ On average, When I get 5400 tics for one day with multicharts 4.0, I get only 4200 tics with multicharts 5.0
:!:

2/ The downloading froze 3 times as I downloaded EURUSD, it was taking arround 1 minute per day downloaded !

It seem to happens, as the cache data is finished reading, then he send the request to get the data which are not in the cache. Then the process froze.


I hope this will help to improve Multicharts 5.0 and your excellent work.

Best Regards

Emmanuel Evrard

Hi,

The difference of number of tick was only because under Multicharts 5.0

the Session of the format Symbol was set as regular.


and in multicharts 4.0 it was 24 hour :idea:

As I set my multichart 5.0 to a session 24 hour I got the same number of tic !
:?

So the reason is found, the case is closed :D

For the second point I need to restart the computer and to do other request to the TS server , to see if the datarequest freeze again.

Emmanuel,
We have 1 million bar restriction. This is why you have fewer bars than you expect.
You can change it and will be able to see all 2.2 million of bars.

Run regedit and set
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TS Support\MultiCharts\Shaper\MaxBarCount = 3000000

the message "backfilling" without anymore data com

Hi Andrew,

I run Regedit I did the change to
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TS Support\MultiCharts\Shaper\MaxBarCount = 3000000

Then I restarted the computer.


Multicharts still can not download before 4/4/2006 (see log attached)

But this time we can see on the left top corner of the chart windows, the message "backfilling" without anymore data coming
(see copy of my screen in the word document attached)

Multicharts now is waiting for more data, giving a message "backfilling"

But no data is coming and backfilling message stay forever :?
