Monitoring Caplin 

Caplin monitoring with ITRS Geneos

The Caplin Platform is a high-performance service-orientated real time web trading framework


ITRS and Caplin have developed a monitoring solution for Geneos users interested in capturing the key operating parameters of Caplin systems, creating actionable alerting and historical logging.

This solution includes all the basic functionality offered by generic streaming servers, but in addition has been specifically designed to handle bi-directional real-time price and trading messages. It offers features such as fine-grained adaptive flow control, dynamic list management, real-time permissioning, subject-based routing and continuous latency monitoring.

The XML template provides teams with canned views on key component functions like:

  • Message Queues

  • Data Cache

  • Global and Detailed Peer Statistics

  • License Information

  • User Connection Statistics 

  • General Component Overviews

Filtering down thousands of health metrics to hundreds of key real-time metrics

“In today’s markets, both operations personnel and business users require real-time visibility into the performance and behaviour of their complete e-commerce stack. This partnership integrates key metrics from all the Caplin Platform components with the Geneos monitoring environment, leveraging the advanced features of Geneos such as custom alerts, and allowing operators to drill into more detailed information including per-user and per-instrument latencies. Caplin is delighted to be working with the leading player in the real-time monitoring for financial markets.”

Patrick Myles, Chief Technology Officer of Caplin Systems

How it works

While the Caplin Platform components are written in C++, their engineers have utilised the Java Management Extension (JMX) for instrument monitoring and management of the Liberator and Transformer components. 

The JVM created by each component holds thousands of metrics and operations. 

By connecting your monitoring framework to each of these JVMs through the Geneos Developer Kit JMX Plug-in we can distil the amount of comprehensive information from thousands down to hundreds of key metrics.

From here, Geneos users can merge these statistics with other dependent systems into one monitoring tool and aggregate summary statistics from multiple distributed Caplin components. Operations personnel can still drill back into the Caplin Management Console for more detailed information on any metrics.
