Qualified members of the STAC Benchmark Council may access the STAC-M3 Benchmark specifications used in this benchmark and the STAC-M3 Test Harness software. They may also request the kdb+ programs used to generate these benchmark results, which are kept in the STAC Vault.
The code that produced the STAC-M3.ß1.1T.NBBO benchmark results in this report actually implemented STAC-M3.ß1.1T.NBBO-Q (see STAC-M3 Antuco specifications for descriptions of the operations). NBBO-Q involves processing and saving more data as well as more computation. It is valid to claim superior performance if NBBO-Q elapsed time is less than NBBO elapsed time. It is not valid to claim superior performance if NBBO elapsed time is less than NBBO-Q elapsed time; the relative performance is not determined in this case.
