Available threads
« on: Sat, 09 August, 2014, 01:58 »
In 'SETTINGS', I have my 'max number of opened threads' set to 50.

At certain hours of the day/night, max. threads are exceeded because a lot of  sports/markets tend to start at the same time.

How can I prevent to start monitoring a new market when I reached max. opened threads......and also start monitoring new market when thread(s) have become available again?

Cheers!

Are you aware about BetFair requests limit?
I'm sure if your computer reports about threads limit it's far more than BetFair's limit. Am I right?

I am VERY aware of the BF charges, but since the latest update of MFP I haven't had BF charges for exceeding the max allowed 20 calls/s. So, Well Done MFP team!  ;)

Max. opened threads is set to 30 default in SETTINGS.

But since my triggers are active on many markets simultaneously with only refresh rate of 1 per 7 secs, I got errors in the Program Log, asking to increase number of threads or increase data req limit,

which I have now set to 6 because I run another copy of MFP on live Horse Racing with a data req limit set to 14.

So I have set in SETTINGS the max number of opened threads to 50 for a few weeks without BF charging, so it seems to be no problem for them, this seems to help a bit, but I think I read in the forum somewhere, it was possible to implement some trigger to prevent from opening a market when max. was reached. Can't seem to find it though.

Cheers!

Hi Botfair,

Hmm, two MF Pro copies with 50 threads open in each and you're still running out of available threads... How many markets do you actually refresh simultaneously? It might be not a threads problem, but the memory consumed by the program too.
Always try your triggers in Test Mode before switching to real money!

Try also checking the memory consumption and see what numbers you have there.
Automatic isn't always everything.
