Latency-Optimised High-Frequency Financial Trading with VPP
High-frequency trading, or HFT, refers to a type of algorithmic trading that uses systems to execute trades in financial markets at extremely high frequency. In high-frequency trading, milliseconds can make a big difference in the outcome of a trade. Optimising the latency performance of a high-frequency trading application can help gain a significant edge over the competition, and therefore help maximise potential trading profits.
10Gbps Network Packet Throughput on Intel Atom with DPDK
At Netadvia, we are firm believers in getting the most out of less when it comes to network devices. This philosophy is fuelled by the need to manage device performance against hardware costs, particularly as intelligence and processing power is being pushed towards the network edge. In this article, we push the limits of Intel Atom powered network devices to achieve 10Gbps packet throughput using a single core.
