Tools And Utilities Documentation
You use the Desktop icons that install with the TT Gateway to manipulate the TT Gateway services and functions.
Table of Icons
The Icon column displays the desktop icons that install with the TT Gateway and the Description column describes what happens when you double-click the icon.
Starts Guardian. When Guardian starts, TTM begins broadcasting across the network.
Stops Guardian. Stopping Guardian entirely disconnects the machine from the TT Trading System. Thus:
Stopping Guardian does not shut down the TTM daemon.
Starts TTChron. Processes scheduled to run in ttchron.ini (in the Job, Server, and Service sections) immediately start up.
Start Exchange Gateway
Issues a command to TTK to resume the functions of the TT Gateway after it was previously stopped using the Stop Exchangename Gateway icon.When invoking TTK, the icon references the tags parameter. Because TTK functions with TTChron, TTChron must be running before you can use this icon.
Stop Exchange Gateway
Issues a command to TTK to suspend (stop) the functions of the TT Gateway.When invoking TTK, the icon references the tags parameter. Because TTK functions with TTChron, TTChron must be running before you can use this icon.To resume the TT Gateway, double-click the Start Exchangename Gateway icon.
Show Exchange Output
Opens command windows that display the verbose output of the Fill Server, Guard Server, Order Server, and Price Server. If these processes generate any errors or important messages, you can view them in the command windows.
TT recommends that you view TT Gateway output when you start up the TT Gateway for the first time and whenever you restart the TT Gateway after a failure or problem has occurred. Viewing this output helps you identify problems as they occur. If you want to leave these windows open for extended periods of time, to reduce CPU usage, minimize them (leaving them open can slow down the TT Gateway).
In addition to displaying output in these command windows, the particular server (i.e., Fill, Price, Guard, or Order) also writes the output to a log file.
Guard Server generates an error. Guard Server displays the error in the command window and writes the error to its log file.
Opens the AConfig Utility. You use this utility to configure aconfig.xml and aconfig_local.xml.For further details, refer to .
