New version increases performance and broadens supported platforms
CodeStreet, the leading provider of market data development and testing platforms, has announced a new version of Replay, the industry standard enterprise-level market data development environment. The latest release includes several key performance enhancements, enabling financial services firms to test market data and messaging applications at significantly increased data rates.
For example, users of the Thomson Reuters Enterprise platform and APIs will see a 2.5x increase in recording and replay performance. The new release increases the recording limit to well over 200,000 msgs/sec on a single instance and increases replay performance up to 700,000 messages per second. In addition, users can now work with instrument lists in excess of 100,000 instruments in a single recording.
CodeStreet Replay dramatically improves the efficiency of any group developing market data and messaging applications. Replay is a sophisticated developer and quality assurance platform for simulating or recovering a series of messages, enabling advanced manual and automated testing and recovery of message-based applications. Replay currently supports Thomson Reuters Enterprise Platform, TIBCO EMS, IBM MQSeries, Solace Systems and any JMS provider using the Java JMS 1.1 API. With this latest release, CodeStreet has also incorporated native support for Solace Enterprise Messaging APIs (SolClient and JCSMP). These APIs have been integrated into CodeStreet Replay to ensure performance at high message throughput and low latency with the lowest possible CPU utilization.
Replay is already running within the majority of the top 20 banks and broker-dealers. This robust platform is used in a variety of use cases to capture, analyze, repair, recover and replay real-time market data and messaging middleware data for development, quality assurance and production recovery use cases. Replay’s capabilities include:
- The ability to pause, fast-forward, rewind and single step through recorded market data and messaging middleware data
- Recreate exact data streams or accelerate replay rates to stress test applications
- Recover production message streams and inject them back into production streams
- Status updates, heartbeats and other realistic market data events
- Creation of market data and messaging scenarios by searching for, repairing/changing data content and replaying back into the infrastructure
"Financial services firms need robust testing capabilities to avoid damaging production issues," comments David Kubersky, COO of CodeStreet. "The new features within CodeStreet Replay address our clients' most stringent needs and enable them to validate their applications under all conditions."
