Processing Speed

Before launching QME its load testing was carried out on the basis of HP ProLiant DL360p Gen8 server platform with the QUIK server installed on a separate hardware platform. The tests have shown that such a software-hardware complex is able to process more than 5000 transactions per second per one financial instrument with execution time of one transaction less than 200 microseconds. The specified latency also includes all infrastructural delays while data is transmitted between QME and the QUIK server.
