User’s Manual for C reference code. fastapi is a C library implementation of the FAST Protocol (SM). It provides a simple programming interface that enables encoding and decoding of FAST messages.
Based on features introduced in FAST version 1.2 which was released in February 2009, this document puts forward recommendations and suggests best practices for addressing implementation issues relating to the use of FAST(SM) encoding of FIX messages, to enable participants to engage in low-latency message interchange in a standards-compliant environment.
The FAST Protocol Technical Overview explains in detail how FAST successfully presents a solution to the problem of spiralling market data volumes.
The purpose of this document is to describe the proper use of the FAST Protocol in a one-way exchange of data, from a sender to one or more receivers as commonly found in market data applications. The document will address both broadcast and point-to-point configurations.
