How many MT4 platforms can I run?

I have a problem of slow or not responding MT4 platforms. I don't think that my resources are the problem, or are they? I use a VPS with 6GB Ram and quad core processors. What would limit me from running as many MT4 platforms that I want? It seems the more I run the slower they get. If I check to resources being used I only see about 1.5GB RAM being used and about 15% processor power, but still the more platforms I run the slower and slower it gets. They are all still reporting to myfxbook every 5 minutes, but if I try to view the platform it does not always display or takes a very long time. The problem is worse during heavy market activity. At night when the market are slower the platforms respond quicker. Each platforms has an average of 4-8 charts open each running one EA. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.

How many are you running? There might not be a problem with your RAM, but how many cores is your processor? It may be a problem with open threads running through the processor. Also, are you running anything else on that computer? Again, your bottleneck could be the hard drive too. Are you running the same file over and over from a 5400 rpm drive?

Hey, MT4 platforms runs with high resources, I cannot say it in numbers. But if you have a look at https://www.cheap-forex-vps.com/index.php/forex-vps-plans you can see an average number of MT4 platforms according to the technical ressources.
It is tough, and once my VPS has been frozen because of a high volume of data transfer. So choose wisely the correct service to run the number of platforms you need.
Yours faithfully

Thanks for the comment. The VPS uses a 4 core processor, 6 GB RAM, 100 GB hard drive. I run 2-10 EA's on each platform running. So when I am running 8 platforms I have an about 30 or so EA's running.

I checked out the information. They say you can run about 25 terminals using 3GB of RAM. It doesn't mention have many EA's can be running. Sure you can run 25 platform with no charts that's no problem. As soon as you add charts, indicators, and EA's you are using a lot more resources. For the top plan they offer 2 -3 GB. I'm not sure what they mean by 2 - 3 GB RAM, is it 2 or 3 GB?

I run 20 regularly on a dedicated server. If you're co-hosting on a VPS someone else might be getting your resources. I don't think I'd have any problem going to 40 or higher.

But I also have a very high spec server, 32 GIG RAM and everything that comes with that...

Wow, nice specs. Are you using a VPS? If so, which one?

Thanks.

It's not virtual in theory, it should be a dedicated box in a server farm, but then again who knows what really goes on there.
