New Solace to kdb+ API from AquaQ Analytics

AquaQ Analytics announces the public release of the new AquaQ Solace-to-kdb+ API.

Online PR News – 11-June-2020 – Belfast, Northern Ireland – AquaQ Analytics, the Belfast based product development and consultancy company, is pleased to announce the public release of the AquaQ Solace-to-kdb+ API.

Solace PubSub+ message brokers ( efficiently move information between all kinds of applications, users and devices, anywhere in the world, over all kinds of networks. The newly released AquaQ API allows kdb+ to communicate with any Solace brokers and provides a translation from most Solace datatypes to kdb+ and vice versa.

We are delighted to release yet another API to the kdb+ user base.

“Our new API is dual threaded and uses the sd0 functionality of kdb+ with a socket pair to signal that data is available from the Solace thread. However, the data itself is not written to the socket pair. Instead it is written to a buffer which the q main thread inspects. This has a number of advantages; it bypasses the overhead of transferring the data over a network pipe; and it allows the q main thread to conflate updates if possible.” commented Gary Davies, Head of kdb+ Engineering at AquaQ.

The AquaQ Solace-to-kdb+ API is standalone and can also be used in conjunction with AquaQ's open source TorQ framework for kdb+. To download the new API code, please see where it is also fully documented.
