Deployment, Load Balancing, and Scalability
TT recommends that you run only one TT FIX Adapter on a machine, as each TT FIX Adapter can host multiple traders and connect to multiple markets. Do not install any additional TT software or FIX-based client software on a TT FIX Adapter host machine.
You must situate the TT FIX Adapter so that it can:
- Access the network segment that hosts the TT Gateway to which it connects
- Be accessed by the FIX-based client applications that trade through it
For optimal performance, TT recommends that you use separate TT FIX Adapters for FIX price and order sessions.
Sample Network Configurations
TT FIX Adapters can support multiple traders over multiple sessions. Thus, one instance of the TT FIX Adapter can connect to one or more TT Gateways and host multiple traders.
The following shows how you can deploy a TT FIX Adapter in different network environments.

Some exchanges might list some products on other exchanges. For example, the European Climate Exchange lists products on ICE_IPE. For those products, you must specify ICE_IPE in Tag 207 (SecurityExchange).
The BM&F BOVESPA exchange lists products on both CME and BVMF. If you have a TT CME Gateway, you must specify CME in Tag 207 (SecurityExchange). If you have a TT BVMF Gateway, you must specify BVMF in Tag 207 (SecurityExchange).
