Hardware considerations for server with C++ Fastflow architecture

Key is throughput of your concurrent processing of the chips and kind as well

[7:48:26 PM] Bryan Downing: here is what I focus on

[7:48:40 PM] Bryan Downing: i am architecting the system:

[7:48:47 PM] Bryan Downing: as i am a mere mortal with a fixed budget

[7:49:15 PM] Bryan Downing: this system needs SSD (small amount is ok as it will only need some console apps with basic Linux services running)

[7:49:32 PM] Bryan Downing: boatloads of ram to house the data

[7:49:42 PM] Bryan Downing: processor is key but this is where you pay

[7:50:12 PM] Bryan Downing: 24 threads are needed for max throughput but for now, i can get a decent little system for under 1k

[7:50:23 PM] Bryan Downing: i can get a good cluster for $1500 as well

[7:50:36 PM] Bryan Downing: just for testing but as they system gets more sophisticated, i scale up the hardware

[7:50:51 PM] Bryan Downing: they key is to remove as many unnecessary services the OS will run

[7:51:25 PM] Bryan Downing: it will have less competition for the processor cycles which the my systems’s threading will compete for so it will be useless to run on windows

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
