Chart Update Lag ?

Postby O66 » 26 Nov 2010

Hi,

im using zenfire via mirus.
I can have 2 connections to this datafeed and have NT and MC running at the same time.

in below video you see the NT dom and MC 500t chart for ESZ0.

the MC chart is more than 30 seconds after NT dom.
at 34 seconds price hits 1187.25 in dom, in mc the video is at 1.13, this is 39 seconds later!

Any ideas what can be wrong here?

Dear O66,

Do you have any anti-virus or firewall software? If yes, please try to disable it.

Also, please disable the log files in Start --> Run --> regedit --> HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TS Support\BugSlayer\ --> Trace\Enable --> False.

Please tell us if the above solves the issue.

i have changed log files to false
im using nod32 for av.
during the opening i was recording my charts and had some lag because of high processor load. (because of Jing recording software...) as soon as i stopped recording the lag was over.
seems like that MC is very sensitive for high percentage processor load, NT was running fine at the same time.
i will try to record tomorrow again and see how it goes.

Thanks

My initial though was that the lag problem might have something to do with hyper threading. I remember having read one report by an MC user claiming MC mishandles HT. But your CPU http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=29765 does not support HT.

Another guess is that the lag might be Intel Virtualization Technology related.

Dear O66,

Does the problem persist? Please explain the situation in details. How many charts (and what data range), indicators and signals you had in MC and in NT? Was this number the same?
