Section: [MEMBER_<text>] 7.17 or higher
Example [MEMBER_<text>] section parameters
For BrokerTec Gateway 7.17 or higher, this section replaces the [Global] section and is used to configure the multi-member functionality.
BrokerTec implements a naming convention utilizing a root name in the [MEMBER_<text>] section to derive the BrokerTec user names. BrokerTec assigns all the users a common root (e.g., Root1) and ensures that all these users share the same password, target IP address, and port. The BrokerTec Gateway can then generate the user names of all the users given the Root Name and the number of TTOs assigned to the Gateway.
The following table lists this section’s parameters and their descriptions.
