Finding a trading anomaly among millions of transactions is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. It’s a long, tedious and challenging process without the right tools. That’s why you need SeaView to zero in on individual trades to find those anomalies.
SeaNet’s approach to latency measurement and transaction performance is based on “deterministic” mapping – rules and logic that are ascertained and built into a database with state engine mapping of complex translations before any traffic is monitored or measured. The SeaView system operates in a phased approach. First the captured messages are time stamped at each passive probe on the network. Then the custom SeaView application decodes embedded on the probe performs a full deconstruction and analysis of the packet and message at line speed, passively reading network traffic from the wire, decode the network packets, and extract their logical, application, and business messages. The logical messages are turned into "RTM Events" that are forwarded to SeaView Matchers via a network socket connection.
SeaView Matchers read RTM events sent by RTM Probes, correlate messages that make up logical business transactions based on deterministic state conditions, and create database entries corresponding to complete logical business transactions and full request/response/acknowledgements with latencies computed for each event from that end to end transaction.
These entries are what drive the SeaView Dashboard and GUIs for real time look up and alerting.
In simple terms, SeaNet is the only latency measurement vendor for financial services who builds a business specific model of your market data and order execution traffic flow. If an order transaction doesn’t follow this defined model, SeaView detects that anomaly immediately because that transaction can only take one of several known deviations.
SeaNet shows the anomalies that other vendors can not.
