05 May 2009  |  2211 views  |  0 Source: Rapid Addition

Rapid Addition (RA) today announced that its FIX engine has processed 70 million messaging with an average time of under 20 µs.

The test was a sustained high volume FIX engine message parsing and transmission exercise. In the tests RA processed 99.9% of 70 million messages in under 30 µs and had a mean and median message processing time of about 19 µs with a standard deviation of 3.1 µs.

The tests were conducted on commodity hardware running .NET3.5 on Windows 2008.

  • Over 70 million New Order Single messages with a size of 197 bytes were sent and received across 140 sessions running 2 threads over a 50 minute period
  • An average 12,000 messages were processed per second with 190MB per minute sent and received on the network.
  • Messages were fully validated
  • Measurements were performed at the application and socket layers
  • Garbage collection had no discernible impact over the run period
  • No memory or thread leaks were detected

Rapid Addition is consistently at the leading edge of high performance low latency technology within the FIX and FAST space, producing consistent high quality low latency performance.

Toby Corballis, CEO of Rapid Addition said: "We welcome the recent developments in the low latency market, where we see a number of competitors and the market in general raising their game. At Rapid Addition we have always invested heavily in R&D and in working with our partners at Intel and Microsoft, enabling us to give our clients a truly competitive edge.

Rapid Addition will shortly be making public its technical performance testing data and would welcome other vendors doing the same.

Rapid Addition would welcome an industry accepted standard in performance measurement. We see a conspicuous need for greater transparency where technical performance testing data is concerned. We intend being at the forefront of the development of an industry initiative for such a standard. This would allow customers to compare FIX engine performance on a proper, like-for-like basis for the benefit of the market and, most importantly, customers."
