"With HUGE volume on AAPL and RIMM for 2 days, everyone in a trading room was whining about freezes, crashes and lag with *******, RealTick, TS and Cyber. InvestorRT with IQFeed was rock solid. I mean SOLID!" - Comment from Public IRC Chat
"Very impressed with the quality of your feed - ******* is a real donkey in comparison." - Comment from A.C. via Email
"I would just like to say that IQFeed version 4 is running very well and I am very happy with its performance. I would also like to extend a big thanks for the fast and efficient help that I always receive. My questions and concerns are always addressed promptly. Way to go!" - Comment from Josh in CO.
"As a past ******* customer(and not a happy one), IQ Feed by DTN is a much better and cheaper product with great customer support. I have had no problems at all since switching over." - Comment from Public Forum
"IQ feed is brilliant. The support is mind-bending. What service!" - Comment from Public Forum Post
"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim
"Thanks for following up with me. You guys do a great job in tech support." - Comment from Phelps
"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email

I am getting substantial lags in the IQFeed data. The lags are measured using the timestamp out of IQFeed and comparing it to the system time when the message enters my software.

Of course, there is an offset between the IQFeed clock and my local system clock. My hope is that the time difference would remain fairly constant and during low traffic times of day, it does. However, during high traffic periods, such as the last 30 minutes of trading, the offset varies a lot, sometimes it just keeps increasing.

Does anyone have any information on how many tickers and how many messages per second IQFeed can support?

I have attached a Python 3.6 program that I am using to do the measurement. First, you will need to start IQLinkLauncher and then run the program as "python"

Thanks in advance
