Without knowing what you are actually doing, or what the processor is the following are suggestions that I use to manage Social Multiplier.

For reference I use the following: Intel i5-3470 3.2GHz. This has 4 'real' cores but no hyperthreading and runs with 12GB ram. It isn't overclocked. So, it is probably not too far from what you are using - but the memory makes a real difference!

Social Multiplier does use a lot of processor and memory.

1) Use Social Multiplier on a dedicated machine for running this type of program. I use this and only one other tool on a dedicated desktop machine (Lenovo Thinkstation M92p). I have two of these machines and while it is perfectly possible to use SM in the background while running 'normal' pc functions I found that things worked better when I moved to a dedicated system.

If interested you can buy these systems through Amazon CLICK HERE! as used for as little as $329. I bought second hand as well and just added extra memory to each machine I purchased.

2) Add memory. I use 12GB on my dedicated machine. My 'work' machine has just 8GB.

3) Restrict memory usage to 85% and max CPU to 70%.

4) Set your tasks to run at different time intervals. The idea being that although all the tasks will run at the same time to start with over time they will start to spread out a little. This will reduce the processor demands of the software.

5) Don't trust what you are being told by system monitors about CPU usage.;) 100% utilisation means that everything happens veeeeeerrrrrrryyyy slooooowly. Even when I have seen such numbers, usually that has not actually been happening. The monitors lie!

6) Don't run lots of different software at the same time (see (1) above.

Using the above methodology enables me to run Social Multiplier and Money Robot at the same time.
I just took a look, Money Robot is running with 26 threads (quite a lot!) and leaves me with 8.3GB of RAM. Social Multiplier is active now with two simultaneous operations and along with MR is using about 80% of CPU and about 4GB of RAM. After a seconds that dropped to 64% CPU.

The system I run is very stable. I recently left it running unattended for about 6 weeks. SM was still chugging along happy as Larry. ;)

As a followup. I have just noticed, having had to do a restart after many weeks, that now when starting up SM is showing 100% CPU utilisation. My other software has automatically reduced its work to zero, as it is designed to do in such cases.

The odd thing is that this did not happen in the past. Something seems to have changed.

What seems to have happened is that every process is reset to start at initialisation of Social Multiplier which hammers the CPU so that everything stops.

If the software actually followed the pre-set schedule then this would not happen and I can see no way stop this happening, absent the programmers making SM follow the schedules through their coding.

As an experiment I paused every scheduled task. This did not reduce the CPU usage. I stopped SM and restarted it. The 'pause' remained in place but CPU usage remained at 100%. Next I went into Task Manager and saw that SM was running multiple instances (but these were not visible on the desktop) and these, between them, were taking all the CPU. I closed all instances apart from one. Resource usage immediately fell to normal levels.

Now SM has been reined in and my Money Robot software is working correctly again. Next I restarted each SM scheduled task, one at a time. Monitoring CPU usage.

I was able to restart each scheduled task. Now I expect that the schedule will kick in and activity will be spread out, as I had designed it to work. This means that CPU usage will be managed within the limits of my processor and other software.

This should not be happening!


[EDIT] Well that didn't last long.
Back to 100%, Stopped MR from working. I closed down several instances of Social Multiplier and everything is rosy again.

To repeat, this is new behaviour on this system.
