BATS Post-Mortem - Network Disconnects 2/3/2010

February 03, 2010 13:16:07

At 10:01:17AM ET BATS applied a standard troubleshooting command to monitor network traffic. The command exposed a bug in the network vendor's software which caused BATS to drop a broad range of member order entry and market data TCP connections. At 10:02:16 (59 seconds later) the affected member ports were able to reconnect.

BATS is fully engaged with the network vendor to resolve the bug that caused the disconnects.

BATS encourages all users to check their settings on all FIX ports to determine if cancel on disconnect is enabled. These settings may be viewed through the BATS Real-time Ports Dashboard at www.batstrading.com with an appropriate login. Users can also contact the Trade Desk to check these settings.

BATS also encourages users that had difficulty reconnecting to their FIX ports due to the implementation of the FIX login process to contact the BATS Trade Desk to re-certify their system's FIX reconnect logic against the BATS Certification environment.

BATS apologizes for the inconvenience caused by this momentary network issue and appreciates your continued business.

BATS Issue Resolved - Order Status

February 03, 2010 10:31:26

Please be advised that all orders were cancelled on ports of members with ports set to cancel on disconnect when the disconnect occurred. Upon reconnect, members should receive all outs and any fills that were in flight at the time of the disconnect.

All systems are operating normally.

BATS Post Mortem - Routing Issue

January 08, 2010 13:46:21

Dear Member,

At 10:43AM ET on Friday, January 8th, BATS experienced a system hardware failure impacting the BATS router. The hardware was promptly replaced within minutes and as routing processes were being brought online, the recovery process was aborted due to file system corruption of multiple files associated with the BATS smart order router. BATS uses a journaling file system and as such, this file corruption has been deemed to be a bug within the file system itself rather than in the BATS smart order router. BATS has decided to keep routing disabled for the remainder of the day as we continue to investigate this corruption issue and implement a remedy. Smart order routing will be enabled Monday morning, January 11th when our market opens at 8AM ET as usual.

All cancels for routable orders in flight at the time of the system hardware failure were sent electronically by 12:02PM ET.

We apologize for the inconvenience this issue may have caused and appreciate your continued support of BATS. Please contact the BATS Trade Desk or your Director of Sales with any questions.
