Order and Fill Server Files

Order Server Log Files

At startup, the Order Server creates an Order Server logfile named Exchange-Flavor_Mode_OrderServer_Date.log to the <root drive>:ttlogfiles directory where:

  • Exchange-Flavor equals the gateway named chosen at install (e.g., SFE-B).
  • Mode equals SIM for Simulation environment or PROD for Production.
  • Date equals the four-digit year, two-digit month, and two-digit day.

The Order Server adds a new entry for each action, including initialization behavior, logins, configuration values, order entry, and modifications. You can use the Order Server logfile to aid in diagnosing problems related to orders and fills.

Order Router Send/Receive File

At startup, each Order Router creates an Order Router send/receive logfile named Exchange-Flavor_Mode_GatewaySessionID_GatewayCompany__Send-Recv_Date.log to the <root drive>:ttlogfiles directory where:

  • Exchange-Flavor equals the gateway named chosen at install (e.g., SFE-B).
  • Mode equals SIM for Simulation environment or PROD for Production.
  • Date equals the four-digit year, two-digit month, and two-digit day.

The Order Router adds an entry to the send/receive logfile when it communicates with the Exchange. This file contains a list of the FIX messages transferred along the network.

Fill Server Log File

At startup, the Fill Server creates a Fill Server logfile named Exchange-Flavor_Mode_FillServer_Date.log to the <root drive>:ttlogfiles directory where:

  • Exchange-Flavor equals the gateway named chosen at install (e.g., SFE-B).
  • Mode equals SIM for Simulation environment or PROD for Production.
  • Date equals the four-digit year, two-digit month, and two-digit day.

The Fill Server adds a new entry for each action, including initialization behavior, logins, configuration values, and fill responses from the exchange. You can use the Fill Server logfile to aid in diagnosing problems related to the Fill Server.

Order Book File

To manage order data, SFE Gateways create the Exchange-Flavor_Mode_orders.tbl and Exchange-Flavor_Mode_orders.tbl.bak in the <root drive>:ttdatfiles directory where Exchange-Flavor equals the gateway named chosen at install (e.g., SFE-B).

The Order Book file stores all orders and their associated statuses. This file stores each order action (i.e., adds, deletes, etc.) as they occur. When the Order Server restarts, the Gateway trims the Order Book file by removing any completed order transactions.

Trade Book Files

The Order Server creates the Exchange-Flavor_Member_Mode_fills.tbl file (referred to as the fills.tbl file) in the <root drive>:ttdatfiles directory to help manage and track all fills that the host sends to the SFE Gateway. The Order Server reads this file to memory and updates it whenever fills are received.

In addition, the Fill Server creates the Exchange-Flavor_Member_Mode_bof.tbl file (referred to as the bof.tbl file) in the <root drive>:ttdatfiles directory to record all fills sent to the SFE Gateway and their status.

Both the fills.tbl and bof.tbl files use the following conventions:

  • Exchange-Flavor equals the gateway named chosen at install (e.g., SFE-B).
  • Mode equals SIM for Simulation environment or PROD for Production

X_TRADER® uses the Trade Book files to populate its Fill window when it connects to the SFE Gateway.
