Configuring the Trading Environment

Load Balancing

When load balancing your traders across HKEx Gateways, you must be mindful of the various Exchange transaction restrictions as listed in the section called Exchange Restrictions.


Due to the variety of factors involved (e.g., hardware specifications, trade volume, etc.), you should work with your Technical Account Manager to determine your optimal load-balancing solution.

Configuring the NIC Setup

TT recommends using a dual-NIC (network interface card) setup for all HKEx Gateways. This includes:

  • One NIC facing the customer’s local network
  • One NIC facing the customer’s Network Gateway
