Gateway and Matching Engine process

Eurex Exchange will improve the internal configuration of the Matching Engine and partition-specific (PS) Gateway processes on T7 by consolidating them on the same server. Prior to this architectural change, an upgrade of the server hardware for the T7 Matching Engines will be carried out. The consolidation of the matcher/gateway processes will enable Eurex Exchange to further reduce latency within the T7 trading platform and provide Trading Participants with more predictable latencies in burst scenarios and during overall increased system load in the future.

Action Item

Improved Matching Engine and partition-specific (PS) Gateway processes

The consolidated matcher/gateway processes will deliver faster order processing times and introduce further stability. The latter will be achieved by means of a simplified process architecture and a reduction of complex failover scenarios between the active and standby matcher/gateway components. 

Trading Participants should be prepared for changed latency characteristics of orders and market data in relation to orders both during and after the rollout to the consolidated matcher/gateway process configuration (please refer to the circular for details).

Timing changes

During and after the rollout phase, various timing figures of order processing and market data dissemination will change.

No action required from customer.

Public data first

Eurex Exchange is committed to a “public data first” principle and will ensure that despite the expected faster ETI response times, public EOBI market data will be disseminated to all market participants ahead of any private ETI responses in all normal market situations.

No action required from customer.
