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.

DataFluidics Releases Reflex, Changes the Landscape of Ultra-Low Latency Data Processing

DataFluidics™, the innovative provider of ultra-low latency technology today announced the general availability of Reflex™, a revolutionary data processing platform for financial institutions. In increasingly fragmented markets where volume-driven automated strategies span time zones and hunt razor-thin windows of opportunities, modern trading desks can no longer be satisfied with the ability to make split-second decisions based on a single market data feed. Traders can no longer rely on single-exchange connectivity either. The new frontier of profitability dictates that advanced trading firms combine and analyze several data sources to reach a decision and instantly dispatch orders to multiple destinations. Yet many current infrastructures remain tied to legacy paradigms of single-input / single-destination whose performance dramatically erodes if multi-channel logic is retrofitted into them. Firms can no longer capture profits.

Reflex was built differently. The fruit of several years of cutting-edge research, Reflex leverages the latest architectural paradigms combined with field knowledge of founder and CEO Daniel Kopko at some of the largest and most profitable firms on Wall Street.

“Reflex was built on the tangible requirement to reshape the way firms process data in today’s trading landscape”, says Kopko. “For many years I observed how firms were prevented from enacting trading ideas because the legacy platforms their execution systems were built on could not accommodate the complex interwoven streams of analytics data and real-time prices which they required.”

Reflex is optimized to enable the combination and correlation of several streaming data feeds to produce composite decisions based on highly-advanced scheduling and processing rules. With reactions capable of achieving ultra-low latency of 1.6 microseconds (with a 99 percentile of 2.5 microseconds), Reflex sets a new standard for software-based solutions which can now directly compete with more expensive alternatives such as custom FPGAs.

“The financial industry is a critical juncture: as the markets recover, some firms will reap the profits of technological choices that will pave the way to substantial gains while others will be left behind”, says Kopko. “We are delighted to make Reflex available as a credible counterpoint to costly, intractable technologies.”

Reflex can be licensed stand-alone or through OEM agreement as embedded technology to enable ultra-low latency trading decisions. The technology can also be purchased or distributed by third-party firms.
