Electronic TradingManaging Data Feed Performance

Assure Data Quality and Performance for Improved Trading Effectiveness

Data feeds delivering stale or incomplete market ticks or financial news directly impact trading success, resulting in lower fill and hit rates and increased exposure for the business.

Corvil continuously monitors your direct and consolidated data feeds in real-time, tracking performance across ticker plants, middleware and messaging layers. Engineered to handle peak data rates across all markets, Corvil allows you to right-size your infrastructure to handle the most demanding and dynamic market conditions and assure high quality price discovery.

 

Outcomes

  • Minimize risk of missing fills due to slow or gapped data feeds
  • Optimize latency of critical infrastructure components such as feed handlers
  • Validate the timeliness of venue delivery
  • Assure relative latency of resilient A and B feeds
  • Quickly respond to client queries about data quality issues
  • Slash time to isolate and troubleshoot data feed problems
  • Maximize return on investment with direct and consolidated feeds

What’s the latency between my sites?

Corvil’s patented technologies measure the per-packet latency of data feeds between sites. It also relates latency performance to microburst activity, identifying if issues are due to the service provider or traffic congestion.

Is my B-feed arriving before the A-feed?

Measure the relative arrival times and latency profiles of resilient data feeds to the same location, or between locations, such as Proximity and co-location.

Is Your Data Feed Provider Delivering What You’re Paying For?

It’s difficult to know if you’re really getting the feeds and bandwidth you’re paying for. Corvil validates which data feeds are being delivered and whether the feeds’ bandwidth usage and performance aligns with your service level agreements.

What happens after I send my orders to the venue?

It’s important to understand venue performance, to help resolve client queries fast but also to ensure the infrastructure is scaled appropriately.

How to accurately record data with traceability to UTC

MiFID II demands order records be stored for a minimum of 5 years, and RTS-25 stipulates accurate time-stamps are recorded with traceability to UTC. How do you do that?

Which clients use the most infrastructure resource?

Are the clients or desks with the highest data rates also the ones who generate the highest revenue? Corvil provides the numbers.

Corvil is the only tool that exists to track orders, alert on Market Data gaps, alert on WAN link microbursts, diagnose who’s consuming our WAN links and… generate weekly reports on all the above. In short, Corvil makes me look like a god. (I would recommend it more, but I’m afraid everyone would then know my secrets).

Key Capabilities

Highly Granular

Recorded with UTC synchronized, nanosecond time-stamps, Corvil provides a highly granular and actionable audit trail of all activity, accurately time sequenced to understand cause and effect.

Customizable Dashboards

See data feed latency in true real-time with flexible and intuitive dashboards. Explore and interact with the data. Quickly drill into events to investigate root cause, or select longer time periods to spot trends, performance patterns & anomalies.

Complex Latency Correlations

Corvil’s correlation engine reports the per-message latency across each infrastructure hop. It takes care of multiple protocols and messaging changes that occur across devices such as gateways and feed handlers.

Infrastructure Scaling

Using microvisibility rather than average measurements, Corvil provides a detailed understanding of transient and dynamic loads, enabling infrastructure components to be correctly scaled to meet data feed performance requirements.

Multi-Hop Transaction Tracking

Corvil’s multi-hop analysis tracks transactions across network and application hops, to execution venues and back again. It provides an intuitive and graphical representation of the latency over the entire journey.

Real-Time Analysis

Analyzing transactions in real-time reveals performance anomalies as they happen. When latency spikes occur, Corvil immediately notifies operations teams and provides the crucial data to understand and resolve the event.
