Configure: Single-Multicast Network with Only Non-Coalesced Price Servers

Overview

In a basic, single-segment network, Autospreader SE Servers share the same network as the TT Gateways and trading clients. All of the TT Gateways send non-coalesced prices to the multicast. This deployment works well when your network bandwidth can comfortably handle the volume of price data needed to by the trading clients from the TT Gateways. For example, you might use this deployment if most traders trade the same few contracts every day and only a few need to access the network through a WAN router.

Network Illustrated

The following figure illustrates a network where each TT Gateway configures its Price Server to send non-coalesced prices. In this environment, the TT Gateways support Price, Order, and Fill Servers, with the Price Server configured to disseminate non-coalesced prices to the multicast. Autospreader SE can share the same multicast prices from the TT ICE and CME Gateways with local X_TRADER and remote trading clients.

Configuring a Single Market

To configure a single market:

  1. Using a text editor, open tt_ase.ini, located in <root drive>:ttconfig.
  2. Add Login information to the [market-Market-Name] section, where Market Name is the name of the market to which Autospreader SE needs to connect.

    Example tt_ase.ini

    [market-CME]

    Member=FGT

    Group=ABC

    Trader=001

    Note

    Only one [market-Market-Name] section is required if all gateways in that market use the same MGT. If connecting to more than one market, multiple [market-Market-Name] sections must be configured.

Configuring a Single Market with Multiple Gateways

When connecting to a single market with several gateways that connect with different MGTs, the following configuration must be used:

To configure a single market with multiple gateways:

  1. Using a text editor, open tt_ase.ini, located in <root drive>:ttconfig.
  2. Add Login information to the [gw-Exchange-Flavor] section, where Exchange-Flavor is the gateway you wish to connect to.
  3. Add additional [gw-Exchange-Flavor] sections as needed.

    Example tt_ase.ini

    [gw-CME-A]

    Member=FGT

    Group=ABC

    Trader=002

    [gw-CME-B]

    Member=FGT

    Group=ABC

    Trader=003

Configuring Multiple Markets with Multiple Gateways

When connecting to multiple markets with multiple gateways that connect with different MGTs, the following configuration must be used:

To configure multiple markets with multiple gateways:

  1. Using Notepad, open tt_ase.ini, located in <root drive>:ttconfig.
  2. Add Login information to the [gw-Exchange-Flavor] section, where Exchange-Flavor is the gateway you wish to connect to.
  3. Add additional [gw-Exchange-Flavor] sections as needed.

    Example tt_ase.ini

    [gw-CME-A]

    Member=FGTID

    Group=ABC

    Trader=002

    [gw-CME-B]

    Member=FGTID

    Trader=003

    [gw-CBOT-A]

    Member=ILRHL

    Group=DEF

    Trader=002

    [gw-CBOT-B]

    Member=ILRHL

    Group=DEF
