    Hello guys, am longtime member but am reader mostly, few months back i started growing instagram accounts and right now i have about 50 accounts on different niches, but am planning to increase to 100-150 accounts.

    My problem is that i was using VPS from greencloud which started to run very slow after adding close to 100 accounts then i switched to anothe company VPS which with this specs;

    CPU: ten cores

    [​IMG]
    Intel® Xeon® E5-2620v3 or E5-2630v4 processor

    [​IMG]
    50 GB RAM (guaranteed)

    [​IMG]
    1200 GB disk space (100% SSD)

    100% SSD disk space

    now am running good with 55 accounts but still little bit slow, what i wanted to ask is, is there possibilty running 150 accounts on one good server with no slow/lags, i would hear something from oneone who is already running 150 accounts or more and what kind of server i should purchase so MP run normally and i dont get pissed off waiting 10-20-30 seconds and freezing. Price is factor but i think i can afford anything normal.

    The E5 is not a good choice for this kind of thing, its got plenty of cores, but not much speed (like 2.5 ghz avg)

    If your interested in building your own instagram PC that you can dedicate to just running Massplanner message me it would cost about $260

    Your question would be better answered over at mpsocial.com. Try lowering your "Maximum number of simultaneous connections" under Settings,Embedded Browser and "Maximum number of concurrent Instagram connections" under Settings,Social Platforms,Instagram.

    Start at 4 and 20. Test and record the results. Raise it until you find the sweet spot.

    It totally depends on how you are using massplanner. If you are doing like 5 posts on each account a day and follow/unfollow a moderate amount that is totally different than posting 20 times on each account and then following/unfollowing at a higher rate. It's not a one size fits all sort of thing.

    If you are pushing these accounts hard its time for a dedicated server.

    1 connection is needed for every 10 accounts,so if you run 100 accounts you need 10 connections.
    Suggested by MP support team,don't use more than you actualy need.

    That doesn't make sense. MP uses CEF (Chromium Embedded Framework) which is hardcoded at 6 max parallel connections (https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/net/+/master/socket/client_socket_pool_manager.cc#44).

    No wonder CPU usage is so high based on those recommendations. Time-slice overhead thundering herd.

    =====

    My order and numbers were wrong. Try these OP. Corrected numbers 20 and 6.

    That was stated by the MP owner,i am guessing he knows how he created the software.His suggestion was only for instagram.
    Also MP team is working on moving some of the workload on one of their servers and that should help MP work a lot better.This move is supposed to happen at the begining of this year,so lets see what they have to offer.

    I confirmed with their own videos stating how many embedded browsers can run at the same time.

    Scroll to :45 mark.

    I checked with TCPView from SysInternals to confirm the number of connections per embedded browser to a website (Instagram). People have been complaining about that hardcoded number on the Chromium mailing list for over half a decade now. I even ran netcat to Instagram to be sure and the max parallel connections was 8 for HTTP/1.1. Unfortunately, HTTP/2 isn't enabled in this version of CEF on Mass Planner.
