Add support to open multiple instance of Bookmap

Post by john9800 » Mon Apr 13, 2020 8:15 pm

As Java garbage collection causes lags and slowness to windows applications, please add support to allow users to open multiple fresh instances of Bookmap at the same time. (TOS has this feature)

This way:
1. Reduce lag and slowness
2. well organized and support for users with multiple monitors, for example one Bookmap for Future Indices on monitor 1, one Bookmap for Stocks on monitor 2

Thanks!

Hi,
Thank you for suggestion. Feel free to ask more people to write here so it gets higher priority, since backlog contains lots of tasks.

About the pauses - actually it should not be as big of an issue as long as you allocate sufficient amount of memory for Bookmap (Settings->Memory allocation, 4GiB is usually enough). Allocating a lot of memory did actually increase GC pauses if you use older GC's, but G1 GC (that we use) attempts to minimize the pauses and, based on our observations, does reasonably good job in Bookmap.

The main source of slowdowns in Bookmap is recentering that currently blocks data visualization while it's being performed. If you experience long pauses while bookmap is recentering (e.g. when price gets close to edges of the view - then it will recenter) - feel free to open another feature request like "improve recentering performance".

I would like to vote for multiple instance support. 🙏🙏

My use case is to have one instance recording the live market and one instance available to run in replay mode.

I would also like to be able to record the live market while run the replay mode.
As well in a separated tab, If it's easier to develop
