I have an ommConsumer that registers its interests and receives updates from the server. Sometimes the rate of updates is too high and I would like to either pause/resume or decrease the update rate. Is it possible at all? I am using Java and would be useful to see an example/code-snippet in case it would really be possible to slow down the update rate and pause/resume the updates.
The rate of updates is set at the service level on the infrastructure. In can be every tick (TickByTick), it can be conflated. Would like to suggest to contact your market data group/admin to verify if an alternative conflated service is available to you.
I am guessing that the application may not be processing the updates quickly enough, and is being disconnected as a slow consumer. If this is the case, a couple of suggestions that may be helpful:
Pause/resume can be requested, if supported by your infra, but not when application is being identified as slow consumer, for more information, see section Reissue Requests and Pause/Resume in RDM Usage Guide and example EMA Java ex350_MP_PauseAll.
Hope this information helps
You may consider using the dynamic view to only subscribe to the required fields. This can reduce the number of updates and the size of messages.
You can refer to the ex360_MP_View example in the RTSDK package.
However, the server must support this feature.
