Quotemanger and IB/TWS

Postby wegi » 23 Sep 2009

Hi,



i setup Quotemanger to collect RT Forexdata vom IB and i connect to the tws.
It works so far, but i have some trouble with it.

quotemanger sometimes stops collecting RT Data. It occurs when i lost my internetconnection
or the TWS is for a few minutes not available.
Each moring at 6:19 (Frankfurt Time), IB reboots the server and the TWS is about 3 minutes not available.
Sometimes quotemanager stops collecting data and sometimes not.
If Qutemanager continues collection RT Data, the break in the stored Tickdata is about 10 minutes, instead of 3 minutes.

Is there something i can do against it ?
- retry time if TWS is down
- robust data collection


Can i check if RT data is collecting or off with a programm ?


Any experience from other users ?

I found out, that running tws and quotemanger on the same PC is much better, than connect to the tws over the local network.
