Solution Performance

Itiviti Tbricks’ Smart Order Router* (SOR) accepts orders from clients and distributes them among multiple exchanges to get the best execution without moving the market significantly and preventing arbitrage of the client orders between exchanges.

Hardware at-a-glance: Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8168 processorIntel® SSD DC P3700 Series
Platform features
: Rebalanced cache hierarchy, latency tuning
Software tools/libraries: Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE

"With the increased core count and new generation architecture we have observed more consistent latency during activity bursts and a significant latency improvement (up to 40%) for some specific workloads (e.g. parallel processing of multiple orders in the Order Entry Market Gateway component).”
Steve Christinson, CTO of Itiviti

Product and Performance Information


Testing conducted on Itiviti software comparing Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8168 processor to 2S Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2699 v4. Testing by Itiviti.
Itiviti Tbricks 2.10*: The critical path measured is from getting client FIX order to the first order sent out to the most attractive and liquid exchange. The test is performed in a controlled simulation of a highly volatile market. Simulated flow creates large bursts, several magnitudes higher than typical production load. Tested by Itiviti May 2017.
Baseline: 2S Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2699 v4, 22 cores 2.2GHz, 22 cores, 128GB DDR4 @2400 MHz, RHEL 7.3, Turbo Boost on, Hyper-threading off.
New: 2S Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8168 processor, 24 cores 2.7GHz ,128GB DDR4 @2666 MHz, RHEL 7.3, Turbo Boost on, Hyper-threading off.


Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
