openheartbeat is a collection of tools and library code to manage a real time data distribution network -
primarily for price quotes for automated securities trading.
The following binaries are included in this release:
ohb - the core component, runnable as a stand-alone application or as a daemon (linux) or NTService (windows)
In standard configurations, this component will run on each computer invloved in the distribution network, including
all client workstations.
ohb-yahoo - a fully working demonstration application using the same core libraries that collects data from Yahoo's
real time stock quoting web service and distributes this data to the network of connected clients. Note: the use of
Yahoo real time stock data is subject to the terms and conditions given on Yahoo web site. This component can be used
as a proof-of-concept and as a test/demonstration of a larger trading platform.
ohbc - a test/demonstration client (both linux and windows executables) based on the ohb library. This client
is specifically designed as a proof-of-concept for collection display of very rapidly changing data sets. Tests using
the built-in simulator function of the client library show shreen updates in the 10,000 to 20,000 updates per second.
