I think your IQFeed Client API is fundamentally flawed. You have implemented a Fire hose-and-Bucket model. If the line is not fast enough, or if the application that gets data from the Client is not fast enough, data is lost.

Please consider implementing the well established Publish-and-Subscribe model. This will guarantee that data is not lost. I also believe that most of the problems that I see on the Developer Forums will also disappear with this redesign.

Would this be in addition to or instead of the existing api? The firehose is fast and efficient, and if an application is unable to keep up, any ats running on the data will not be trading efficiently. And if you take a look at how the exchanges publish their data, that is one massive firehose. Basically, they multicast their data: one stream is published and everyone pulls out of it what they need.

er... how does that differ from your suggestion?

Clearly DTN cannot abandon their current API. A new Publish and Subscribe system would have to be developed in parallel with the existing one.

A Publish and Subscribe system guarantees the delivery of the data. No data is lost.

This solves the problem of a noisy, unreliable internet delivery system that has not implemented the concept of "Quality of Service".

Take a look a and

This thread is afterall just a Wish List...
