Have you tried pressing contol/alt/del to check out what's running and how much memory there is to spare?

Re: Smart Live Markets - Spread Bet on MT4

I'm running MT4 using Virtual server machines on Windows XP using a basic dual core AMD with 2GB of RAM. I have two MT4 platforms running independantly one using Smartlive the other is linked to another broker, one server is solely an IIS server with FTP configured. The main XP box is running intensive VB scripts 24 hours a day and the total CPU useage is about 60% max when the script is analysing the data. It might be worth looking at the virtual route soley for the MT4 platforms as it allows you to run multiple broker platforms on one standard workstation box. I use a VM package called Oracle Virtual box and it's free open source software. Definately worth looking into if you'd like to simultaneously test MT4 platforms on a very basic PC system. I have to say Smartlive on MT4 is working smooth a silk so far - fingers crossed.

yeah i build everything in VM's - snapshots are brilliant to just go back to where i was.
the problem really is MT4 and other components that run like pigs.
im running a digital filter on this particular system and the lag setting just makes everything grind to a halt - its just MT4.....
i have changed the setting in the range bars to update every millisecond as opposed to realtime but its still painful - did i mention i run vista - oh yes. im so lazy i cant be bothered to change it back to xp - its cack for running vms too...

ill go back to a desktop soon with enough wack to run several vms in workstation....

best of a bad job as im running stuff not as it was intended - ie to the max.

Have you been considering offering the DAX30SB at 1 point spread an hour earlier in the morning? Most of the SB companies switch from off hours trading to this timing for the DAX index.

One Thing I would point out to owners is that I would suggest they try and get a faster feed. This morning's spike down (GBPUSD) on news was over 2 seconds slower than all my other brokers. I have noticed this on other news releases as well....Maybe it is just my connection to SB. But I doubt it because I have AUS broker that has quicker chart updates during news.... Maybe something to watch.... I haven't tried to see if the old prices are tradeable but would be a shame for you if they are because it seems to be rigged against you!
