STAC-M1 Test Harness

This page provides the most current version of the STAC-M1 Tools and documentation packages.

The STAC-M1 Test Harness package provides a framework for consistent, reproducible testing of low-latency feed-handling solutions against the STAC-M1 v2 Benchmark Specifications and the STAC-M1 v2 Datafeed Addendum for Aggregated TVITCH 10Gbps. Users integrate the test harness with their direct exchange feed solution, a STAC-M1 Consumer application, a server with an Endace DAG card for playing back TVITCH data and a latency monitoring solution capable of recording and correlating observations. See the STAC-M1 Users Manual for full setup details.

Contact STAC at council@stacresearch.com for access to the TVITCH playback data. The TVITCH playback file is 20GB and is supplied on portable hard drive.

The training videos (STAC-M1.v2_AggregatedTop5OfBook_Overview_Section*zip files) provide an overview of the STAC-M1 benchmark and toolset, including background information on the benchmark, typical test setup requirements, the testing lifecycle, a demo of a stand-alone test and various tips related to configuration, system tuning  and post-processing. Each package covers a section of the training and provides several ways to view the video. We recommend using the html files (e.g. "STAC-M1.v2-AggregatedTop5OfBook_Overview.section1.html" ) to launch each video because it provides an interactive index so you can jump between chapters.
