Informatica Highlights Performance of SMX Messaging

Informatica Highlights Performance of SMX Messaging


blog | June 18, 2013 – 2:34am | By Pete Harris

Following on from last month’s announcement of Ultra Messaging SMX, Informatica has published a range of latency and throughput performance figures for the shared memory transport, covering a number of programming languages. Messaging latency as low as 39 nanoseconds was recorded, with overall latency more than 16 times lower than tests conducted on an earlier version of the transport, conducted in May 2010.

Ultra Messaging SMX is designed for messaging within a single server – in fact within a single multi-core chip, an architecture that has become increasingly adopted as Intel has rolled out its Sandy Bridge (and now Ivy Bridge) microprocessors – with up to 12 cores on certain Ivy Bridge chips. On chip cache memory is leveraged by SMX, since it is faster than fetching data from standard RAM.

Latency tests were conducted between threads running on the same core (2 threads per core are supported by Intel) and between cores on the same chip. Throughput tests were conducted from one thread to threads across many cores on the same chip. Informatica did not test latency between cores across sockets, since it would have been higher than for a single socket.  

Informatica tested its transport against C, C# and Java APIs, noting that trading systems are often built using a number of languages and so such support is a typical requirement. The test systems for latency included one server with an Intel Xeon E5-1620, with 4 cores, clocked at 3.6 GHz, while for throughput tests a server with a (pre-release) 10 core Ivy Bridge chip, operating at 2.8 GHz, was used. CentOS and Red Hat Linux operating systems were hosts for the C and Java tests, with Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 supporting the C# tests.  

Some highlights from the tests are:

* Thread to thread latency on same core, for the C API, and 16 byte messages, was 39 nanoseconds. The same for 128 byte messages was 48 nanoseconds, for 512 byte messages was 81 nanoseconds. 

* Thread to thread latency on a sibling core, for the C API, was 103 nanoseconds for 16 byte messages, 111 nanoseconds for 128 byte messages, and 135 nanoseconds for 512 byte messages.

* C# and Java latencies were a bit higher.  For example, latency for 512 byte messages between threads on the same core was 135 nanoseconds for C# and 106 nanoseconds for Java.

* As an example of a throughput test, 16 byte messages were transmitted from one thread to up to 19 other threads on the same chip. With 19 receivers and the C API, throughput of 133.92 million messages/secomd was achieved, without batching of messages. Batching – which increases latency – increased this to 305.34 million messages/second. Informatica found that throughput increased nearly linearly as receivers were added.

While the significant decrease in high frequency trading has reduced the overall need for such low latency transports, Informatica notes that it is still required for other trading operations and strategies, such as arbitrage, market making and smart order routing.

CNSX Markets (Canadian Nat Stock Exch + Pure Trading) Deploys Point of Presence in Equinix TR1 Data Center

CNSX Markets (Canadian Nat Stock Exch + Pure Trading) Deploys Point of Presence in Equinix TR1 Data Center


Newswire | June 11, 2013 – 2:47pm

Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced that  CNSX Markets Inc. (CNSX Markets) has deployed a point of presence (PoP) in Equinix’s TR1 International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center in Toronto, Canada.

Highlights / Key Facts

·         Spurred by requests from customers already located in the Equinix TR1 facility, CNSX Markets expanded its infrastructure into TR1 to streamline connectivity and reduce costs.

·         CNSX Markets, a recognized stock exchange, is the operator of two venues: the Canadian National Stock Exchange (CNSX) and Pure Trading™. CNSX is a venue for listing and trading of Canadian public companies, primarily in their early stage of development. Pure Trading provides a low latency/high performance continuous auction market system for securities listed on other Canadian stock exchanges. 

·         Location directly affects cost trajectories, system performance and a financial institution’s ability to keep up with fast moving trends. CNSX Markets’ new PoP in Toronto positions its systems for maximum connectivity, performance and agility, which lowers the barrier to entry for dealer participation.

·         Equinix’s TR1 IBX data center is located in the preeminent telecommunications carrier hotel and data center facility in Canada. TR1 provides CNSX Markets with a full array of premium data center and support services with extensive network choice and the ability to interconnect to customers and partners across the financial services ecosystem.


·         Richard Carleton, CEO, CNSX Markets:

“The Equinix data center in downtown Toronto represents a significant concentration of equity market liquidity in Canada. As an organization, we are constantly looking for ways to assist our dealers and other market participants to reduce costs and network management challenges. By offering our customers a low cost, high performance access to our services through the new point of presence at Equinix we can broaden the access and visibility of our marketplaces.”

·         Stewart Orrell, managing director, Global Financial Services, Equinix:

“CNSX’s point of presence will be a valuable addition to our growing financial ecosystem, offering direct access to an even wider range of securities and market data available from one location.”
