Hi, everybody. I regularly notice various problems with MQL5 Cloud, namely:
- Super-long wait for the start of testing, despite the fact that the selection of agents by the system and connection to them takes place in a matter of seconds. Moreover, everything is displayed as if everything is in order and the tests are going normally, but you can wait for the real start of testing in this state for more than one hour. At the same time, the system does not forget to write off money on the sly.
- Testing is extremely slow and it is not affected by the number of operations being tested, the amount of Expert Advisor code, the period or type of optimization, or any other factors that I could influence. The screenshot below shows the optimization time that the tester calculated in the genetic optimization mode when testing for a period of two weeks (!). In a normal situation, the optimization of the cloud would take less than a minute.
Of course, this does not always happen, often the cloud works out perfectly and the optimization process is very fast and cool, but I meet such problems so often that I decided to ask here. Share your experience, whether someone is faced with such a thing, how did you solve this issue for yourself? Can it be cheaper and faster to rent a server and perform calculations there?
