Back Test Timing out

I am having a big issue with QC. I want to run my algo on 15 min, 30 min, 1 hr, 2 hr time frames but I cant run them for longer than a couple months back or else the back test will stop short because it hits its time limit. I want to analyze how this algo runs with different parameters with different aggregation times. The goals is to look at different parametes over multiple years, but because of this time out issue, that will take hundreds of hours and tons of back tests as well as continuity issues!!... Please help!
Update Backtest








I heard we'll maybe be able to configure timeouts soon. But in until then, you'll get some more time if you add more securities in initialization and ignore them in OnData. I believe the timeout is determined by Resolution X Time Period X # of securities.

Hey Tim! Sorry you've had an issue with timeouts. The backtest is insanely slow at the moment, but we did some speed optimizations which increased its backtesting rate 10x. We'll push those updates tomorrow along with a beautiful version deployment system!

The new "version deployment system" lets you use the latest and greatest code directly from github within 10 minutes of us pushing the updates :) Its freaking incredible.

PS. Using QC for optimization is tedious at the moment, but we're working on it. We launched the first step on that process (parameter algorithms) recently and soon we'll have automated variable-space searching. For now @Levi's hack will work to double or triple the amount of time you have available to backtest :)

@Levi- Nice, thanks for the hack we'll give it a try!
@Jared - Awesome!Really looking forward to the optimization!

Thank you guys
