STAC Report: Solace 3230 Content Router - Guaranteed Messaging

One pair of 2U appliances received and forwarded over 100,000 guaranteed messages per second (mps).

STAC has just released test results of guaranteed messaging through the Solace 3230 Content Router from Solace Systems, using Linux-based clients connected to the router via switched gigabit Ethernet. The tests involved heavy duty message rates in client configurations that are relevant to trading scenarios like order execution. In addition, one test case simulated a significant failure event (loss of connectivity to over a third of the clients, followed by recovery) and studied the impact this had on the other clients.

In summary, we found:

• One pair of 2U appliances received and forwarded over 100,000 guaranteed messages per second (mps).

• 99.9th percentile latency of less than 1 millisecond at aggregate ingress rates ranging from 2,000 mps to over 100,000 mps.

• During the failure scenario, 99.9th percentile latency for those clients that remained online held steady at under 500 microseconds. During the period when the disconnected clients were being recovered, it was just over 1 millisecond.

• The system passed the verification procedures:
o No data were lost in the “pull the plug” test.
o All messages were correctly routed and delivered in the proper order.
