In our company we have some scripts running on the machine that we have the Eikon desktop, all related to Eikon services. One of these scripts is made in python and uses the API with the Streaming Prices method, however we noticed that sometimes the desktop APP is slower and the other services respond to many timeouts.
My question is: can the use of this streaming script be affecting the performance of other services?
And something related would be: could it be something related to the limitation of requests?
I know that none of the other scripts exhaust the number of daily requests (10,000 if I'm not mistaken, right ?!), but with this script making 200 rics with high frequency ticks, is it possible that this is the reason? It was not clear to me in the documentation how requests are counted when using Streaming Prices, could you elaborate?
Thanks in advance,
The request in the Streaming Prices does not count towards limitation.
I believe that the reason is that you are consuming 200 "high frequency" instruments.
So the processing/callback might not be able to catch up with the incoming updates.
