IconDescription

Start Guardian

Starts Guardian. When Guardian starts, TTM begins broadcasting across the network.

Stop Guardian

Stops Guardian. Stopping Guardian entirely disconnects the machine from the TT Trading System. Thus:

  • TT User Setup is not able to see the TT Gateway or collect log files.
  • Client TT workstations are unable to connect to the TT Gateway.
  • If the machine is actively WAN Routing, the network disconnects. If a backup WAN Router exists on the same network segment, connectivity fails over to the other WAN Router.

Stopping Guardian does not shut down the TTM daemon.

Start TTChron

Starts TTChron. Processes scheduled to run in ttchron.ini (in the Job, Server, and Service sections) immediately start up.

Start Exchange Gateway

Issues a command to TTK to resume the functions of the TT Gateway after it was previously stopped using the Stop Exchangename Gateway icon.When invoking TTK, the icon references the tags parameter. Because TTK functions with TTChron, TTChron must be running before you can use this icon.

Stop Exchange Gateway

Issues a command to TTK to suspend (stop) the functions of the TT Gateway.When invoking TTK, the icon references the tags parameter. Because TTK functions with TTChron, TTChron must be running before you can use this icon.To resume the TT Gateway, double-click the Start Exchangename Gateway icon.

Show Exchange Output

Opens command windows that display the verbose output of the Fill Server, Guard Server, Order Server, and Price Server. If these processes generate any errors or important messages, you can view them in the command windows.

TT recommends that you view TT Gateway output when you start up the TT Gateway for the first time and whenever you restart the TT Gateway after a failure or problem has occurred. Viewing this output helps you identify problems as they occur. If you want to leave these windows open for extended periods of time, to reduce CPU usage, minimize them (leaving them open can slow down the TT Gateway).

In addition to displaying output in these command windows, the particular server (i.e., Fill, Price, Guard, or Order) also writes the output to a log file.

For Example:

Guard Server generates an error. Guard Server displays the error in the command window and writes the error to its log file.

Aconfig Utility

Opens the AConfig Utility. You use this utility to configure aconfig.xml and aconfig_local.xml.For further details, refer to .
