Multicast Test Program

To troubleshoot multicast issues we provide a simple program that may be used to test multicast feed connectivity issues. This utility can be downloaded from our web-site using this link . The credentais are available upon request.

How does `MulticastTest` work?

`MulticastTest` for ICE is a CLI tool which accepts IP and port of the multicast group you want to test. If UDP data is available for the given multicast group, MulticastTest receives UDP packets, checks ordering and reports statistics or warnings about sequence GAPs.

For example, the following command checks the availability of ICE Futures Brent, Price Level, Live Feed in APITest environment:

$ MulticastTest.exe --verbose --ip --port 20228 --interface --maxPackets 30
port: 20228
timeout: 30
maxPackets: 30
