Replication tool (RT) is intended to provide continuously updated copies of FIX logs of the FIX Antenna-based application (e.g. FIXEdge).




Real-time data synchronization

Logs files in subscriber’s storage are updated in real time. The set of received FIX messages is added to the subscriber’s log files in a configured time interval.

Usage as a Disaster Recovery tool

RT batches the messages and is suitable for geo-replication. If the primary FIX engine crashes, the backup FIX engine will recover the sessions from the replicated logs to continue processing FIX messages without data loss.

Working modes

Work in one of three modes:

  • Client-server mode (publisher and subscriber are located on discrete computers)
  • Administrative Tool Mode (connect to subscriber and control replication process)
  • Standalone mode (publisher and subscriber are located on the same computer)

The user can configure the needed mode for work.

Usage as a FIX logs archive

RT might be useful in configuring a FIX logs archives on subscriber's computer.  

Re-replication of re-written log files

Available since Logs Replicator 1.3 version

Existing log files can be re-replicated in the case when if they were cleared and re-written correctly by the control application (i.e. FIX Antenna).

Multiple FIX logs storage

As a publisher can communicate with several subscribers, several log storages can be configured on discrete computers.

Storage configuration

Publisher configuration:

  • Publishers can look for logs only in the root folder or in all sub-folders recursively and add them to the monitor list
  • Publishers can look for several chosen sub-folders in a folder

Subscriber configuration:

  • Subscribers can accept any logs in folders from publisher or in all sub-folders recursively
  • Subscribers can accept from publisher several chosen logs in a folder

Operating system

  •  Windows
  •  Linux

Support for other platforms is available on demand


Replication tool client connects to Node 2 and requests the messages. First, it receives the messages that received and sent before Node 1 started; then, it receives new messages as they are received or sent by the FIXAntenna-based application on Node 2. 


Multiple FIX logs replication

Replication tool allows you to configure multiple FIX log storage in distinct computers.
