Configuring Product Subscriptions

Overview

Product subscriptions for derivatives and equities are configured on the BVMF Gateway by enabling multicast groups (product data) in the hostinfo.cfg file. The FIX/FAST channel and connectivity information for each product is defined in MulticastGroups.cfg, which is not configurable.

The MulticastGroup parameters in the [PriceServer] section of hostinfo.cfg are used for subscribing to FIX/FAST channels. Refer to the following example.
