25000+ subscribers

Been using program with 500 - 900 subscribers but now I am trying a huge list for me…

In the Queue and Load management Area what seems to work best for a large list of subscribers.
Any feedback you can give would be appreciated
This is what I think will work
(‘MANUALLY_PROCESS_QUEUE’, 0);
(‘SHOW_PQCHOICE’,false);
(‘MAX_PROCESS_MESSAGE’, 12);
(‘MAILQUEUE_BATCH_SIZE’, 810);
(‘MAILQUEUE_BATCH_PERIOD’, 900);
(‘MAILQUEUE_THROTTLE’, 1.1);
(‘MAILQUEUE_AUTOTHROTTLE’, 0);
(‘USE_DOMAIN_THROTTLE’, 0);
(‘DOMAIN_BATCH_SIZE’, 1);
(‘DOMAIN_BATCH_PERIOD’, 120);
(‘DOMAIN_AUTO_THROTTLE’, 0);
(‘MAX_PROCESSQUEUE_TIME’, 0);

i am using 3.4.6 version

i’d probably set the delay so that the quantity processed is about 80% of the batch period… i.e. you have 810 emails * a 1.1 second delay… = 891 seconds. it does take a certain amount of time to generate an email, and write to the database etc…

so my suggestion is make your delay about 0.95 s…
Also, you should be using a cron job, that runs every 300 seconds or so…
once you get this running, then you can make small edits as you run your jobs… to tweak the speed.

Thank you for the suggestions. I am using a cron that fires every 600 seconds… will consider moving to shorter time.
Once again, “Thank You” for your help!
