Design Best Practices for Latency Optimization
Source: Cisco Systems
The approach to minimize latency must be a holistic effort that takes into consideration the entire market data system from end-to-end and focuses on reducing latency throughout the design. This whitepaper addresses options for mitigating key sources of latency within financial data network implementations. Topics surveyed include propagation delay, processing and serialization delay, packet size, queuing delay, transport-layer implementation, middleware, applications, server operating systems, and security/compliance considerations.
