How It Works


InRush™ Ticker Plant can be configured to record data from multiple markets simultaneously on a single server. Data received from the ticker plant is captured to disk on a per exchange basis, in compressed .pcap format that preserves the original packing from the source exchange. All subscribed exchanges for a trading application can be captured on the same server, enabling nanosecond-level time stamping at packet arrival time from a single highly accurate GPS clock source. This ensures that the data will be accurately replayed to reflect the identical arrival sequence for the co-location center where the recording server is located.


We record market data on a daily basis at key co-lo facilities and send this data to Redline’s data cloud in near real time. Redline’s Recording Service can keep the data for which you are entitled readily available on fast drives for the required period of time. Various archiving techniques may be employed to meet specific customer requirements.


This data, stored in files, can then be replayed by the InRush ticker plant’s .pcap injection utility. It can also be replayed over the network with tools such as tcpreplay or inspected with Wireshark. InRush, when configured in replay mode, can replay one or multiple exchanges simultaneously while merging them in a single time series such that the replay sequence of the messages exactly matches the arrival sequence at the network adapter at recording time. This feature lets users re-create complex scenarios such as consolidated book or user-defined synthetic BBO calculations. Replay speed is a configurable option limited only by the read speed of the storage subsystem employed.

Delivery Options


Redline can make available to you the data we have recorded at key co-location centers, either as a one-time purchase or as an ongoing subscription.
