multiple instances mfp OR 1 overall-trigger ?
« on: Sat, 06 April, 2013, 12:03 »
I want to use many triggers on many different markets.
what is better and why:

tu run multiple instances of mfp with different profils (as many here do) or to create 1 overall-trigger that works on the huge my-markets-list?

Hi
Well, they both have their advantages, but going on what you say about the number of markets I think you might need all the data requests you can get for monitoring the markets. If you run separate instances, you consume data requests for statement, wallet, score, silks, bets etc. in each instance, plus you have to reduce the total requests in each instance to fit the max of 20 RPS across all instances. If you get down to about 6 or 5 RPS available for each instance, the program will not work properly. So purely based on market refresh data requests needed, I would suggest one instance.

hi
it all depends on the market start time.
i run up to 9 profiles, but each market starts at a different time.
so i have all 9 set to 10 refreshes per sec, and stagger the statement and account times in each profile, so they call for accounts etc at different times.
