Ottawa, Canada, October 3, 2017 – INCEPTRUM Technologies Inc., a solutions provider to the capital markets industry, today announced the availability of its latest automated verification tool, called Log Compare (“LOGCMP”) which supports quality assurance verification (offline auditing) of Market Data and Regulatory (IIROC) Feeds.

LOGCMP is the latest addition to the Data Sentinel suite of automated verification tools from INCEPTRUM and employs the concept called “Adaptive Testing” for true verification test coverage (offline) of Market Feed output.

This new verification approach uses information such as, Drop-Copy and Execution Reports, sourced in from trading system production logs, to re-create a dynamic data reference with which to verify any feed under test.

LOGCMP automatically adapts to different trade flows recorded in production data logs, removing the need for a test engineer to support multiple test setups associated with different trading scenarios. A single test setup in LOGCMP, is all you require to test different trading flows presented to the trading system and verifies that the logged output from multiple back-end data feeds was as expected.

Dmitry Kursov, President & CTO, Inceptrum said, “Our “Adaptive Testing” concept provides a much needed solution for verifying Market Feed output under high load conditions — which is not feasible using traditional functional test setups, due to the non-predictive order of trade matching between counter-parties under variable load conditions. Comparing feed output against a static data reference is not an appropriate test approach under high load conditions, due to changes in trade message sequence and content (i.e. price, volume, etc.) for each test run.”

LOGCMP can be deployed for non-intrusive post-transaction auditing in both development and production trading environments  checking for message drop-outs, out of sequence messages, malformed messages and inconsistent data content on your Market Feeds. One of the key advantages of LOGCMP tool is its ability to run multiple analysis passes on the same post transaction production data logs. The analysis coverage provided by LOGCMP, is identical to the highly acclaimed real-time monitoring tool “FEEDCMP”, released by INCEPTRUM earlier this year and adopted by a major Canadian Exchange.
