I'm on Wine 8.13 with two instances of SC 2527 and at least for now, I do not detect any data issues. I will continue to test. I followed the recommendation here although I did make the changes and completely exit and re-enter SC:

I've updated to SC 2528 and everything is working well. Also, SC 2528 seems to use less memory and memory seems to stay lower over time rather than creeping up.

For those facing similar absolutely slow download/chart updating speed, I've tried nearly everything and nothing worked, except for this: Resolution of Poor Network IO Performance under Linux/Wine

This fixed my issue and I'm back to normal speeds. It's not perfect, as in, when looking at charts you can see the timer is not 100% stable, but it at least doesn't skip seconds nor does it take me hours to sync a few weeks of data. So for as far as we are concerned, this seems to be a fix, though I have the impression a better fix may be on the horizon or should be considered.

A few updates: I'm seeing issues with 2550, 2549 and 2547 (With a 3rd party custom study I use, SC Exits as soon as the .dll is loaded under Windows 10 and Wine/Linux). I have let the 3rd party developer know and provided a chart and instructions that demonstrates the issue 100% of the time.

2540 is working great so I'm waiting for the issues to be resolved with the 3rd party.

Latest configuration:
SierraChart Version 2540 64 bit (2 instances)
Wine development-8.16
Mint Linux 21.1/Cinnamon desktop
Kernel 5.15.0-83 generic
AMD Ryzen 7 3800X
GeForce GTX 1660 Nvidia/6 GB GDDR5/Driver 470.199.02/OpenGL
Dual Monitors 1920X1080 60 Hz for both monitors
Total System RAM: 16 Gig
Memory usage: <800 Meg each instance running 2 instances. I added some memory intensive studies.
CPU Utilization: <8% per SC instance. I have disabled SMT and allocated 4 processors per each of 2 instances (total of 8 processors). Experimenting to see if this improves high volatility price action during significant market events. I am using taskset -c to specifically allocate processors.
During FOMC on 9/20/23, data tracked very well with no hesitations with very high volatility. Will be keeping this setting of 4 CPUs per instance.
102 Charts, 4 instruments (ES, YM, NQ, RTY) 51 charts per instance
Denali data-feed with MBO data
Teton Order Routing with Stage5/Advantage
Rithmic for trader evaluations and PA account
RealVNC for remote access
Updated 9/20/23

Also, with such great performance and stability, I am adding a Linux Laptop from System76 to my home system with my goal over time to completely replace my current Microsoft Windows 10 laptop used for business, testing and SC support. I DO NOT plan to migrate beyond Windows 10! The only Windows specific applications other than SC are MS office applications and this will be a realistic attempt to completely eliminate MS Windows from MY LIFE! I further STRONGLY encourage and support SC to provide a native Linux offering!
