I've currently read the same pages on database and the number of bars and other relations.
I get RTD data which I have set to base interval to 1 min and stored locally.
What I have realized is that when explore runs, it loads each symbols data file in the RAM.
When I start AB, its like 10MB, and for every symbol added to explore it increases by about 1MB per symbol because currently that seems to be the size of each flat file (file of each symbol in local DB).
Q1. Is there a way to limit the number of bars stored in the RAM? My Explore is very vbasic and computes only on past 10 days data.
Q2. 200MB isn't a big deal but the daily rise seems to be alarming over a period, can this be handled or one needs to dump, trim and re-import the data?
