Does Core Count hold more importance than RAM When Running MT4?#
The answer depends on what trading platform you’re running. Generally, MetaTrader 4 (MT4) runs well on a single core CPU. Therefore having multiple core won’t be signifacantly better much unless you run MT5. MT5 does utilize all the available cores the system has. Having multiple cores on the system allows you to see performance improvement over a single core CPU. But when it comes to the RAM, having more RAM has more benefits. With more RAM you can have multiple MT4 platform with charts, indicators and EAs. But it is important not to use all the RAM specifically to run your trading platforms because the Operating System needs certain amount of RAM to keep the system running. Best is to allocate at least 512MB or 1GB per MT4 instance.
How Many MT4 Terminal Can I Run on My VPS?#
The VPS can run multiple MT4 terminal charts at the same time. It is important to pay attention to the available RAM resources in the Task Manager. That way traders know whether the VPS has the available resources for additional MT4 terminal into the VPS. The best practice is to keep 512MB to 1GB for each MT4 terminal. Therefore if you have a 1GB RAM in your VPS, you should have 1 MT4 instance or maximum of 2 MT4 instances running on the VPS. If you have 4GB RAM, you should have maximum of 8 MT4 running on the VPS.
