      iLink Convenience Gateways Fault Tolerance Changes  - February 4

      To simplify the iLink Fault Tolerance, effective Sunday, February 4 (trade date Monday, February 5), all Convenience Gateway (CGW) iLink sessions will move to MSGW-style Application Level Fault Tolerance with an enforced primary gateway. CGW session connectivity and login behavior will exactly match the MSGW current state.

      Upon launch, all CGW iLink sessions will have a designated host that is primary and another that is designated backup. CGW customers must successfully logon to their designated primary IPs and ports before attempting to logon to the backup.

      If the primary CGW fails, customers who logon without the fault tolerance must reestablish the connection to the newly promoted primary.  For customers who logon with the fault tolerance, the newly promoted primary will send a Heartbeat message with a Fault Tolerance Indicator (FTI) of ‘P’ in the tag 49-SenderCompID to notify the primary status of CGW connectivity.

      These changes are currently available in New Release for customer testing.

      A new CGW Fault Tolerance certification test suite is currently available in Autocert+. Certification via AutoCert+ is optional.

      Drop Copy is not impacted by this change.

      If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Global Account Manager in the U.S. at +1 312 634 8700, in Europe at +44 203 379 3754 or in Asia at +65 6593 5505 for additional information.
