    Most traders will host their cTrader automated strategies (cBots) on a Virtual Private Server (VPS), these servers do not come cheap and the memory or RAM as it is known can add to the cost. This tool will help you keep your costs down and also tell you if you need to add extra memory.



    What is RAM?

    Random-access memory is a form of computer data storage which stores frequently used program instructions to increase the general speed of a system. RAM is used as "temporary storage" by your computer. The amount of RAM you have determines the number of programs and services running.


    So what happens when your computer runs out of memory (RAM)?

    When your computer runs out of memory, your computer will start to use the hard drive space for "Virtual Memory". The problem with this is that your hard drive read/write speeds are much slower than the RAM read/write speeds. You will notice your hard drive activity LED constantly flashing, and your computer will start to run slow. The more "Virtual Memory" used, the slower your computer will run.


    Do You Need a Large Amount of RAM on the VPS Server?

    The answer is a simple "NO", there are many things you can do to reduce the amount of memory being used by your PC or Server so that your Algorithms can run smoothly. Watch the video below which will explain how you can reduce memory usage without having to pay out large amounts of money each month.

    A must have for any serious cAlgo freak
    This tool is advertised mostly as helpful on small vps when usually RAM amout is funny, so even running cTrader just to keep your cBots alive is demanding. And that is true, this little cBot will help you to keep your VPS stable and makes cTrader do not lag!

    However, there is another VERY useful target for using this tool - if you are into optimisation of cBots, love to test things, many setups, lots of parameters you already know that this process needs ton of RAM. However, sometimes even big memory amout is sstill not enough - I had problems with finishing heavy optimisation for one year back of tickdata, also on very small timeframe so there was a ton of candles to calculate, on many various parameters of cBot setting. All tries usually ended with cTrader hang or force closed when I was running out of 64GB RAM space. This tool helps me avoid this as it cleans RAM often. At first I was skeptical - woudn't cleaning data from RAM interrupt optimisation? But looks like its made so smart that it don't, I still get many backtest done without any mistake so yeah, its amazing and neccessary for my job.

    In short - yeah, cTrader has serious problem with memory, especially if memory leak happends (you close cTrader but memory is still cached). Also, it needs ton of RAM to work on serious backtest. With this tool, you can do all you want without worrying something crash and you will lose many days of your work.

    There are some free memory manager bots for cTrader - but they work with tick as a trigger - this means, when markets are closed, they simply don't work! So you can't run safely any optimisation cause you are not protected from running out of memory! This tool works independent of ticks, it uses memory load as a trigger as its constantly measured. Smart, isn't it?

    10/10, would buy again.
