Results of the annual load testing of Moscow Exchange trading and clearing systems
Moscow Exchange announces the results of the annual public load testing of its FX, derivative and equity trading and clearing platforms.
The load testing will allow trade participants to measure performance and capacity of their systems as well as network bandwidth requirements as high transaction rates in order to plan the updates of own infrastructure to deal with "bottlenecks".
Peak transaction frequencies have been tested on all three major markets and the appropriate recommendations and requirements to customer hardware and network bandwidth have been determined.
Testing results demonstrate that trading and clearing systems of the Equity&Bond Market doubled their capacity versus 2017 with frequency of transactions exceeding 62 thousand transactions per second, FX market trading and clearing systems capacity raised by 50% to reach 69.9 thousand transactions per second, and frequency of transactions on the Derivatives Market was 128 thousand transactions per second (30.5% higher vs 2017).
Moscow Exchange would like to thank all the companies and IT specialists who took part in this activity.
