As high performance trading systems become faster and process more data, the network
becomes critical as the most reliable source of performance data. While complex trading
analysis and risk mitigation still need to be performed outside the network layer,
significant cost savings and scale advantages can be obtained by moving certain
high-volume tasks such as timestamping and buffer monitoring to the network devices, like
the Cisco Nexus 3548. This integration with Cisco Nexus switches help enable high
performance traders to extend the reach and visibility of their CorvilNet monitoring
system with no loss of granularity or accuracy in reporting.

“High performance traders are increasingly looking for ways to extract granular
performance data from their networking equipment,” said Tuqiang Cao, Vice President of
Product Management at the Cisco Data Center Group. “Cisco is working with industry-leading
monitoring vendor partners, like Corvil, to integrate the unique analytics features of the
Nexus 3548, such as packet timestamping and active buffer monitoring, to bring more value
to our end customers.”

Donal O’ Sullivan, Vice President of Product Management, Corvil, said, “This really is
the next generation of low-latency data monitoring. Timestamping and certain other
time-critical functions will be performed by the infrastructure, while correlation,
analysis and reporting will be done by monitoring solutions like Corvil’s. This will
deliver a broader monitoring footprint at a better cost-point for our mutual customers.”
