The Data Your Firm Needs for Infrastructure and Network Planning

Data rates are measured by Exegy appliances. The MarketDataPeaks appliances capture messages per second and packets per second. Messages per second shows the rate that trading infrastructure must process data to keep up with live data feeds, while packets per second shows the rate at which networks must transmit data to prevent dropped packets.

In addition to per-second rates, MarketDataPeaks measures microbursts of market data feeds—the rate generated in a one-millisecond interval, which often can be 10 times greater than the rate seen in a one-second interval.

See aggregated data rates for consolidated and direct feeds from major US exchanges or view the rates for individual feeds.
