Exchange Host Failure and Recovery


In the unlikely event that the actual exchange host fails, all electronic traders on that exchange lose their connections.

Connection Failure

If the exchange host fails, traders experience the following:

  • Orders in transit before the failure are lost.
  • The GMEX Gateway Order and Price Servers begin cycling (starting up and shutting down according to the schedule set in ttchron.ini).
  • All price, order, and fill data becomes stale.
  • Traders lose their connections and cannot trader.

Connection Recovery

When the exchange host recovers, the following occurs:

  • If set to run in ttchron.ini, the GMEX Gateway server components (Price, Order) reconnect to GMEX.
  • The GMEX Gateway re-request all fill and order information from the exchange.
