The View Status option reduces network traffic that results from status packets sent from an order router(s) and displayed in Guardian. The View Status feature gives an administrator the option of requesting a status display, thereby reducing the flow of order router traffic.
Essentially, as a result of the view status enhancement, Guardian does not show order router nodes in the display until a "View Status" command is issued. When such a command occurs, Guardian displays order router and trader information for approximately 30 seconds, at which time Guardian removes the order router information from the display.
To view order router status:
- After performing an Admin login, highlight the IP Address in the exchanges tree associated with the fill server(s) for which you wish to view status.
On the Tool menu, click View Status.
The status display of the fill server(s) will change as illustrated below (after View Status initiates):
Note: By default, the fill server status, as requested by an administrator, disappears after 30 seconds (Guardian's timeout period).
The color of the Order Router icon provides an overall status of the order router.
