IB Data Farm Interruptions Today

Discussion in 'Data Sets and Feeds' started by Wayne Gibbous, May 20, 2008.

  1. I keep getting "Market Data Farm Connection Broken": USFARM
    And "Connection OK", every couple minutes from the API.

    You also see the quotes blink on and off in TWS.

    Anybody else?
  2. My ISP service seems normal otherwise.

    Cummon IB, this sux right b4 the open...
  3. Quotes are still blinking on and off.

    Guess I'm the only one?

    Strange. My TWS is that off color, signifying connectivity problems. Yet I am getting quotes through the API for both futures and equities.

    nitro :confused:

    sheesh, cant log on... no answer on phone ... are stops held locally or on there server ?.. need hedge but cant find out position .. very poor very poor srvice ... grrrr
  6. They must be busy writing new bells and whistles into their next
    software release...
  7. I have to use Hughesnet satellite ISP. Big latency. Maybe IB's datafarm was more sensitive than usual. Hasn't been a problem for years and years, but could explain why there weren't 50 ET'ers chiming in.

    Hope they haven't changed something that will hose me. Guess I'll find out soon!
