The MQL5 Cloud Network allows you to quickly optimize your Expert Advisors using the power of thousands of computers. The network combines remote agents and distributes optimization tasks among them. The Strategy Tester connects to the cloud network through multiple access points, which are distributed on a territorial basis (e.g., MQL5 Cloud Europe).
To use the network agents, enable them using command " Enable" in the context menu of the Agents tab of your Strategy Tester. Since the MQL5 Cloud Network is a paid service, a user must have an account at the MQL5.community website, through which all the accounting operations are performed. Account details are specified on the MQL5.community tab of the platform settings.
If you do not specify the details of your MQL5.community account before enabling the MQL5 Cloud Network agents, you will be offered to do this.
If you have not registered on the website, use the new account creation link.
Like with a conventional optimization, you need to set all the testing options and Expert Advisor input parameters. On the Agents tab, you can monitor how the Strategy Tester distributes tasks to available agents. The number of available and currently used agents is displayed for each access point.
Traders may need to run hundreds of thousands of optimization passes in a reasonable time. With the multi-threaded Strategy Tester and the MQL5 Cloud Network, in one hour you can complete the calculations that would require a few days without the network. The computing power of thousands of cores is available straight on the trading platform.
The details of the calculations performed using the MQL5 Cloud Network are available in your MQL5.community profile.
The report displays information about the tested Expert Advisors, the number of test runs and the amount of money spent.
