Kickass trading DELL server Tesla GPU on Linux ?

Kickass trading DELL server Tesla GPU on Linux

Let me know what you think of this combo for a high speed trading server to start with:

http://canadaserver.wix.com/canadaserver#!product/prd1/3673522191/dell-t5500-%2C-2-x-quad-2.93-%2C-72gb

https://www.amazon.ca/Tesla-C1060-Compute-Board-Retail-4gb/dp/B001H5V6LO <– very cheap on ebay ROUGHLY 12k threads each if 2 installed (2*12k=25k threads available!)

Should be compatible with RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) but could you CentOS 7.x.

Total investment: 1K+2*400=$1800 CDN approx max

Notes:

Read about CUDA API v 7 here https://devblogs.nvidia.com/parallelforall/how-overlap-data-transfers-cuda-cc/

In Tesla video below, he said that each GPU takes 150w of power

http://i.dell.com/sites/doccontent/shared-content/data-sheets/en/Documents/Dell-Precision-T5500-SpecSheet.pdf

Power Supply: 875W 88% efficient
Will it be sufficient to hold 2 Teslas at 150W each?

The drivers ‘could’ be compatible with CUDA 6.5-7.x?

Hardware considerations for server with C++ Fastflow architecture

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

Let’s talk nerdy (not dirty silly):

Meet World’s fastest server with world’s fastest database

Now this is the most confusing part I have ever worked. This posting is a work in progress so sit tight as I update. There will be a massive video for this as this is one of the hairiest things I have worked on in years.

Simulink code generation C with Redis demo

Wait til you try to convert to C++. Haha, I cannot wait.

Lastly, we got our one and most likely only presentation from the VP of Active Trading for the  IQFeed API. All you questions can be answered live as well but IQFeed themselves!

New info via Twitter here:

P.S. Once I complete my above video with C and Redis integration, you can expect all source code to be made available to my Quant ELITE members.

There was some concern about graphical user interfaces (GUI) for C++. This was sent over from someone concerning this TCPIP server in Qt. As for me, I plan to use Matlab GUIDE to develop my own GUI programs.
