"Previously I was using *******. IQFeed is WAY more economical, and for my charting needs is just as good, if not better." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"Version has been working well for me and I appreciate that it is now a much tighter client to work with. I feel I can go to press with my own application and rely on a stable platform" - Comment from David in IA.
"With HUGE volume on AAPL and RIMM for 2 days, everyone in a trading room was whining about freezes, crashes and lag with *******, RealTick, TS and Cyber. InvestorRT with IQFeed was rock solid. I mean SOLID!" - Comment from Public IRC Chat
"I like you guys better than *******...much more stable and a whole lot fewer issues." - Comment from Philip
"I have to tell you though that using the IQFeed API is about the easiest and cleanest I have seen for some time." - Comment from Jim
"Just a thank you for the very helpful and prompt assistance and services. You provided me with noticeably superior service in my setup compared to a couple of other options I had looked at." - Comment from John
"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob
"You are much better than lawyers or the phone company because you answer the phone when I call! I just love your customer service." - Comment from Isreal
"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim

Hi - I run both ProphetX and DTNIQ on the same box. Sometimes(today, for example) ProphetX will timeout and restart even though my network connection is still working fine and DTNIQ is putting up current numbers. I don't know if there's a problem with the network getting specifically to the PhX servers(while the path to the DTNIQ servers is OK), or what, but it's very aggravating having PhX blow up all over my monitors during the trading day.

So, is there any way for me to expand the timeout value that PhX uses?

Worst case, could you all expand it in the next release?

DTNIQ is typically rock solid, but this PhX thing is getting really old. This bug has been in every version I've run, over many years.

Hello AMA,

Unfortunately, we did have a network outage at a secondary site that was resolved after the initial report and our servers had to disconnect users to move them over to a good site. The process of moving users itself, does not take long, 10 -15 seconds, but ProphetX is configured to wait for 30 seconds before trying to reconnect. I will inquire with PM to determine if this delay in reconnection can be adjusted to a smaller time frame as you suggest. I will also ask them to look at what may be different between the two products, such as time out values. My apologies for the delay in reply.

FYI - If you click the key icon at the top of the screen it will bring up your login box and by reconnecting there, you would skip the 30 second wait between connection attempts.

Thanks, as always, for your input!
