BackFilling - PC is running out of memory

Postby rondot samuel ws » 17 Dec 2010

Hi,

I have 2 instances of MC last release.

On 1 instance I have about 20 workspaces. only 2 differents instruments, 750 bars back in 60". very very few indicators, none indicator on almost all wksp.

When I run MC and open wksp and set Automate order on, MC use about 350 000 K memory in Process explorer (from sysinternals).
I have 8 gb ram, windows 2008 srv 64 bits, intel i970. cpu usage is 5%. physical memory usage 33%.
The 2nd instance use about 750 000 k memory.

So everything is ok.

Almost all my wokspace are already on March2011.
For 1 wksp,I change instrument from Dec2010 to March2011 (TF in this case).

If I choose 50 bars back and after 250 and after 750 everything is ok.

But if I choose directly 750 bars back, backfilling became very long, MC became "not responding" and MC in process explorer grow up to 3.8 GB
and sometime MC freeze or crash. I have to kill it.

and after I have "PC is running out of memory" even if memory back to 350 for this instance. The other don't change and stay at 750.

Other wksp are already 750 bars back on the same instrument, why MC need so many memory just for backfilling during change instrument ?

thanks for your reply

regards

Laurent

I am also getting this message "PC is running out of memory"

I have one workspace open with 6 charts each set to 1000 bars back

The only indicator I have on all of them is the default volume indicator

I also have one scanner window open with 250 symbols set to daily.

I have a quad core 64 bit pc with 8 gigs of ram running MC Version 6.1 Release (Build 3605)

Thanks

Dear iso,

Please send us your workspace so we can try to reproduce the situation on our end.

i had a similar problem with 3605 so i reverted back to 3445 (beta 4) and haven't had a single memory error message since. before with 3605, i couldn't even load a single 1min chart going back 8 yrs without constantly getting the "running out of memory" message or even having MC force close on me. this was without any indicators on the chart, no other programs running, and with a pretty powerful rig (overclocked i7, 12 gigs ram, ssd, the works).

Hi Dave,

I try to reproduce the problem and make video etc...
But MC is in production and make "tests" on my live server could be dangerous, I try to find time for do it.

May be for other person having the same problem, it's easier to reproduce the problem
