broker and datafeed connectivity status event

Postby franky » 14 Mar 2014

I would like to know if there is a datafeed connectivity status event. The broker connectivity status event in TradeManager exist but not for the datafeed.. well... Can't find it !!
If it doesn't exist ... can it be implemented ?

I've made a feature request for this around a half year ago:

MC-1109 - Add a Connection event to IDataSource

It has not been reviewed yet, but I still hope this is going to be implemented soon since it is an important feature.

Not a real solution in my opinion, since there are more than enough instruments that do not trade actively for a prolonged time period (>5 minutes), especially besides RTH.

That sample code might be a solution for regular MultiCharts, but with the advanced capabilities of C# it's strange that we have to use these crude, ad hoc methods while a simple event implementation will do.

I do agree with JoshM. A simple event would be mandatory. Minimizing the risk of broken connection is essential on both datafeed and broker side.

MultiCharts Support, what do you think from the objections mentioned above?

This PM request is by the way the fourth most voted for MC .NET feature request, so Franky and I are not the only ones who miss this feature.

Unfortunately there is no technical possibility for implementing this functionality at the moment.

A potential workaround for this would be to monitor the QuoteManager log files (in AppData\Local\Temp\TS Support\Logs\TSSupliers\), but do you know Henry if these log messages are persistent across MultiCharts versions? Or do they change with new MC/API versions?

Usually the log messages are persistent. If a new data provider support is added - it has it's own log messages.
