Corvil also helps help us determine where to focus our performance improvement efforts. With the tick flow process, we can look at that. We've split it into four key parts in our infrastructure. We can see, straightaway, which part is generating the most latency, which tells us where we should focus our efforts, where we should spend time and effort and money.

This solution help us determine where to focus our performance improvement efforts. It quickly identifies areas of concern from a performance perspective. It allows us to see the outliers and any increases in the median latency, which tell us whether or not there is a specific area that we need to focus on in terms of performance improvement.

It helps us determine where to focus our performance improvement efforts. We can ensure the round trip time: From the time we push out an order to the time that we receive an ACK back. Before we started using this tool, we didn't have any visibility into this scope of information. Now that we do, we can tweak our performance on the smart order routing (SOR) engines.

If more time is spent on the venue round trip's time, there is very little control that we have, because there might be an increase in latency at the venue's site which we don't have visibility of. Therefore, we can discuss with the exchange or market, why there was an increase in latency at this particular time, and whether there was any particular changes at their site or if something was different. If we have those statistic, then we can go to the market or the client, providing them those statistic and talk about them in more detail. For example, why was there an increase or decrease in any particular latency during a certain day?

It helps us to determine where to focus our performance improvement efforts. It frees up the resources who were looking at the network packets and looking at the connectivity and trying to analyze things packet-by-packet. Corvil does most of the job and frees up the folks who were doing that. It gives us a better picture and also gives us a better front end to navigate through.

When it comes to determining where to focus performance improvement efforts, let's say you have a multi-server architecture. Corvil has what's called a multi-hop type of configuration which allows you to correlate a message. Let's say it's four hops deep - four different servers, and each of them may speak the same type of protocol or different types of protocols. Corvil enables you to build channels and signatures which, after it's seen on the first server for the first time, and on the second server, correlate those. That lets you know how long it took in that server, going in that in that particular direction; and similarly, across the other servers and back again. You can isolate things: "Hey, this took a second. Oh, but server three took three-quarters of a second to pass it along to server four."
