Performance Tuning at Tier 1 Bank

Chronicle Provide Performance Tuning at a Tier 1 Bank in London


Chronicle were engaged to provide performance tuning at a Tier 1 bank in London. They were having issues with latencies within their Equity Trading system and one of our objectives was to improve the longest delays in order management systems with minimal changes to the underlying framework. The main challenge they faced was identifying where the delays were so action could be taken to improve performance.


To identify why threads were taking so long, we implemented a monitoring system which took a stack trace when a thread took longer than 50 microseconds.

We discovered that the biggest source of delay was log file rolling which paused the JVM for around 250 microseconds. Our solution involved implementing a number of configuration changes and targeted improvements without significant changes to the code.
