(I'm going crazy because of this problem I tried for hours gone through several posts and I didn't achieve anything.)
Simple question: How do I choose all agents in the tester? I can only choose one at the time so only one core does all the processing. I want to use all cores. How do I achieve that?
I've already read that:
If you run only one settings, 1 core will be used.
If you run optimization, all cores will be used. "
but what does that mean? How do I do that?
One setting means- one pair, one set of the customizable fields - one run, no optimization with different field values.
1. General settings - start page
Go to first page of strategy tester and check that optimization is enabled.
Suggested based on real ticks, for one pair/symbol and e.g. lowest DD + profit.
2. Go to the settings tab
Identify one or several variables and configure carefully start value, increment and end value-
Tick them to enable the testing for these fields.
3. check agents
Go to agents tab, potentially enable also network farm and/or cloud service
Check for your own agents, that all of them are enabled and ready to use
or read my blog post in case you disabled certain CPU by accident:
Thanks. That was very helpful. Is there no multicore calculations done when you do a normal test (so without costumization) because the code isn't made to operate with the advantage of doing it faster with more cores?
imho or as far as I know point one of your post 666548 isn't helpful or misleading because the setting just changes the how many cores will be used by bootup and as far I know it doesn't make a diffrence in start time even if you're running an SSD. And after the boot is done, the setting doesn't matter at all.
yeah it does actually explain it very well
