The OnixS directConnect: CME MDP 3.0 Market Data Handler C++ SDK now supports direct access to the SolarflareTM ultra-low latency ef_vi API.

The OnixS directConnect: CME MDP 3.0 Market Data Handler C++ SDK version 5.1 release includes a new implementation of a pre-built Feed Engine using the SolarflareTM ultra-low latency ef_vi API on Linux.

About SolarflareTM and OpenOnloadTM

OpenOnloadTM is part of the SolarflareTM suite of network acceleration technologies. The OpenOnloadTM package includes the Onload sockets acceleration technology for transparent acceleration of sockets-based applications and the ef_vi API for high performance raw Ethernet networking.

The OnixS directConnect: CME MDP 3.0 Market Data Handler C++ SDK ultra-low latency ef_vi API Feed Engine now supports direct access to the SolarflareTM network adapter data-path to deliver the lowest possible latency and reduced, per message, processing overheads.

The key features and benefits of using the SolarflareTM ef_vi API are:

  • User-space: it can be used by unprivileged user-space applications
  • Kernel bypass: Data path operations do not require system calls
  • Low CPU overhead: Data path operations consume very few CPU cycles
  • Low latency: Suitable for ultra-low latency applications
  • High packet rates: Supports millions of packets per second per core

For more information on the OnixS CME MDP 3.0 MDH C++ SDK support for the SolarflareTM ef_vi SDK, you can refer to the CME MDP 3.0 MDH C++ Programming Guide.
