The performance metrics are pretty good. We've got everything from the network layer to the actual application layer. We can see what's going on with things like sending time and batching. Corvil is very useful for us. This has happened a few times: We can tell if an exchange is sending us four quotes in one message, when they should be sending the quotes immediately. Otherwise, the fourth quote gets backed up behind the first quote. We can see things like that, which is good. Time-series graphs are very good for performance analysis. We can do comparisons. We can do minus one week, or we can say this is the latency in the last 24 hours, and this was the same 24 hours a week ago and overlay the two time-series graphs on top of each other, so we can see the difference. That's a really powerful tool for us. We make improvements in the network all the time, so it's useful to be able to quantify what the effect of that change was. The performance analysis is pretty strong.

In terms of the product's performance analysis for our electronic trading environment, as I've said, our application is a low-latency application. We have our own internally developed proprietary system that runs on our own servers. Corvil is sniffing for traffic that comes from the client to our process and through to the exchange and then it's calculating latency between these different endpoints: coming from the client to our servers, from our servers to the exchange, and it's giving us latency. Apart from the network latency, where we want more control is inside our process. As I already mentioned, it has helped us improve our product.

The performance analysis that Corvil provides for electronic trading environments is very nice. That is what we primarily use it for: To monitor order routing and order execution to all the venues, as well as to our trading partners. It performs very well.
