Configuring the Price Server

OVERVIEW

To create a Price API connection, you must configure the Price  Server connection parameters in the [PriceServer] section  of Hostinfo.cfg.  You can optionally use the [PriceServer] section to configure dedicated  NIC settings for market data.

SECTION: [PRICESERVER]

Configure this section to set the product group  subscriptions for the Price Server connection to the Fenics U.S. Treasuries (UST) binary market data protocol price feed. The IP addresses and ports for the Fenics product group  are defined in the MultiCastGroup.cfg file. The Fenics Gateway only  uses one [PriceServer] section  in hostinfo.cfg.

Configure the following parameters:

[PriceServer] section parameters

Parameter

Description

MultiCastGroup

Configures the type of data (i.e., products)  to which the Fenics Gateway subscribes. The gateway uses  MulticastGroup.cfg to determine how to connect to the Fenics binary market data protocol feed. The value of this parameter must match the value of the multicast group parameter in the MulticastGroup.cfg file.  By default, the gateway subscribes to the FCS-1 channel group for all available U.S. Treasury Bonds and Notes products. 

fcs-1_replayid

Sets the server ID for connecting via TCP/IP  to the Fenics UST binary market data protocol re-request service to recover lost packets. Enter the Binary Snapshot Session "Username" provided by BGC for the Fenics UST platform.

fcs-1_replaypassword

Sets the server password for connecting via TCP/IP  to the Fenics UST binary market data protocol re-request service to recover lost packets. Enter the Binary Snapshot Session "Password" provided by BGC for the Fenics UST platform. 

NetworkInterface Sets the IP address for a dedicated network interface  card (NIC) on the TT Gateway machine in trading environments that use multiple NICs. By default, this parameter is commented-out and the Fenics Gateway uses the primary NIC. If the NIC is not configured in the exchange network, uncomment this parameter and set the IP address.
Example

[PriceServer]

MulticastGroup=FCS-1

fcs-1_replayid=f77a0u1x

fcs-1_replaypassword=FNCvustx

# Unless your Primary NIC is in the exchange network,

# uncomment the applicable line(s) below and

# fill in the NIC IP address

NetworkInterface=10.10.10.1
