Thread: Swvps Very Bad

  1. #51

    Default

    I setup an account on vpsland.com 1 week so far, reliable, no reboot, and lags, no disconnects.. I recommend the starter plan, has 1 gig of ram, am currently running 24 MT clients, using about 800 meg of ram, and low cpu usage. they have %50 first month.

    if your running a vps, I recommend watching your memory, and never let it go past 75% of total ram (check by(start, run, taskmgr)), simply because there may be instances that have a short term spike in ram usage, probably result in Clients stopping.

    how to watch what is happening on your vps without always logging on to see what is happening... on both your vps and home machine install MSN Messanger client, if your server looses connection, reboots ect... your msn buddy will disapear..

    I am using pidgin messanger on my local machine, the advantage is, it has a feature called Buddy Pounce, simply add your vps's msn user to the buddy pounce list, checking off, (signs off), (Recurring) and (pop up notification -fill in the message (Server Down)) and whenever your vps get logged off, rebooted, or whatever, you will get a popup message from pidgin saying -Server Down- (is my server up?, add me to your msn mcbvps1 (AT) live.com)

    Another app I use to help me out with MT clients is a Startup Delayer, simply put shortcuts from all your mt clients into startup delayer, and spread them out about 20 seconds each. (spreading out startups will help avoid memory spikes) that way when rebooting server, you don't have to start each one manually..

    vpsland and forexvps are really the same company. vpsland wanted to get a bigger part of the forex market so they setup the forexvps company. same exact service.

    The problem you are experiencing with ibfx may be due to all the hops and letency on the internet. check out this chart and see if you are getting any better: Latency to popular brokers from our Trader's Desktop - a VPS for traders - Technical Support

    ...as i noticed to john many times....

    tip over all: use a vps company which is a isp himself!

    first choice:
    home at eu = vps in the eu = broker in the eu
    home at us = vps in the us = broker in the us
    home at asia = vps in asia = broker in asia

    second choice:
    home at eu = vps in the us = broker in the us
    home at us = vps in the eu = broker in the eu
    ....

    operating system:
    first choice - w2k3
    second choice - xp
    never ever windows emulation like wine under linux

    if you a pro trader, take and buy always first choice + tip over all
    if you have only demos, try the cheapest vps

    Bill,

    235ms is rediculous to any broker. consider changing providers.

    IX and Barry...Thanks...I just checked from my house too and IBFX is 235 here also, FXDD is 49....IX do you think 235 is causing the NO Connection at the VPSLAND or is it something else...???What are the possibilitys??? FXDD is smoking on VPSLAND while IBFX DOA....It's been hours now since I submitted the trouble ticket...NO RESPONSE from them (except for the autoreply)

    Hi Bill,

    The latency you are concerned with is between the VPS and the broker. The latency between you and the vps is of little concern. The robots that are doing the trading are running in the vps, and you're only sending keyboard/mouse clicks, etc.. At worse, this will cause a little lag in painting your remote desktop screen, but even that can be optimized pretty good. I see this all the time with subscribers from the southern part of Africa. they usually use VNC to connect to get the best remote desktop performance, all while enjoying a trading terminal 16ms away from IBFX. VNC is another remote desktop client software for use in accessing the vps. No real need within the USA to use anthing but MS RDP, which you are probably already using.

    With the least latency between the vps and the broker, the MT4 terminals will enjoy all the benefits.

    In the interest of full disclosure, I am the owner of Commercial Network Services. I was pointed to this thread by a subscriber and could not help but post.

    235ms is quite high. since you are also experiencing high latency to IBFX from your house, I must assume you are also on the east coast. vpsland is based in Atlanta, and so the problem can be on the backbone they and your ISP are using to reach IBFX in Salt Lake City (just an educated guess). With your vps closer to ibfx, you would be immune from this.

    our san diego data center reaches IBFX and back in 16ms (14X faster than what you are doing now). Our New York City data center (due to open March 27) gets to FXDD in 1ms (49 times faster than one you are doing now). this is why vpsland can not possibly have good latency to ibfx...they are in Atlanta, so you immediately have the overhead (and potential points of trouble as you are seeing now) of the x-country IP transit.

    Latency is the physical delay caused by the electrical signals passing through the various copper and fiber infrastructure that make up the core of communications networks. We measure it as the time it takes for a packet of information to reach your broker and come back. Ultra-low latency trading offers tremendous advantages for the trader because price quotes are received and orders entered before most other traders receive the same quote (usually several times over). This is most valuable during periods of volatile market activity when prices change quickly and latency may affect pricing. Low latency also offers the trader more reliable connectivity to the broker because there are fewer hops on the Internet for potential problems to impact the data transmission, requiring the data packet to be sent again at the expense of time. According to Wikipedia, A 1-millisecond advantage in trading applications can be worth $100 million a year.

    Here is our current latency chart. We will be adding another data center in the UK late april/early may.

    Barry...Thanks for the info...Low communication time to the Broker is a value....(now if we could just get around the brokers....occasional...., I think sometimes deliberate, delay in closing positions). Do you own the equipment, building, and company or are you an affiliate of another company?? You are more expensive...and although it really is not a lot, no one wants to overpay for service. I also realize there is value to speed and reliability....heck I noticed IBFX was DOA because of the absence of a "Trailing Stop" the EA should have created to lock in profit. What is different in the environment, both hardware and software, between you and VPSLAND?? And what are the possible reasons IBFX has NO Connection on MT4 at VPSLAND....??? It isn't the VPSLAND 235ms because it's running from here at 235ms....I am located near Chicago....BillR

    we are not an affiliate, we are our own real company and have been since 1995. our servers are located in "carrier hotels", or data centers where the telcos all come together. this is common in the industry. You can read about our datacenters here: Commercial Network Services - Data Center

    vpsland is located in atlanta, and since you are also experiencing high latency then I'm guessing it's a major backbone. they probaly have no other way around or are stuck with the route becuase it's technically still up but they are only using bgp and no performance routing. I really doubt they are using performance routing. we got lucky really...we have a strong streaming media customer base too, and so our network demands performance routing. it works really well for traders too! ahha

    our routing equipment routes by least latency, instead of least hops like most others do. least hops is usually the shortest route but it's also the most congested and thus can take longer to get there.

    Although we use performancing routing in NYC too, it is not so much of a concern because it's only a few blocks to the brokers, if they are not in the same datacenter. there are 3-4 in the same area in NYC that host all the brokers and everyone is peered with eachother anyway...

    we also give you two-factor authentication 2FA - Two-factor Authentication by CNS

    there is so much more in this solution than any other. The best VPS for FOREX, commodities and equities traders

    subscription EA's and free EA trials

    oh yeah, our emergency support is something I am very proud of. We have a special ticket queue for traders who are having trouble while exposed in the market. average time to resolution is 3 MINUTES. try that with the phone

    night and day...

    all I can say is try it and if you don't like it we have a 30 day money back guarantee. I actually recommend you setup two, one in san diego and the other in NYC to run the respective brokers from each, etc.. I'm so not a sales person, just a techie talking here...

    they run the same virtual technology, but that's where it ends.

    here is a ping I just ran from my virtual desktop to IBFX.
