Response time?

Postby fraybentos » Wed Oct 18, 2006 11:57 am

Just lately i have been struggling to make any money in-running.There are two reasons why this might be happening,
i) the tracks that i have been to have had some good teams working there(thus beating me to the prices)
ii) the software is sometimes slow.

Could someone tell me please if the response time can tell me if it might be the second reason. What should the response time be?

The response time just shows the round trip from you placing your bet to betfairs servers and back. The lower the better. Obviously if there's a 1 second delay and your response is 1273ms then the response time is 273ms. I've noticed slow response times using the API and use the old version at the moment for anything that needs speed

A response time of 600 seems high should really be in the 10's of milliseconds . Mine at the moment are around 70 ms but it's hardly an active period now at 9:41 UK time.

Sports betting software from Gruss Software


The strength of Gruss Software is that it’s been designed by one of you, a frustrated sports punter, and then developed by listening to dozens of like-minded enthusiasts.

Gruss is owned and run by brothers Gary and Mark Russell. Gary discovered Betfair in 2004 and soon realised that using bespoke software to place bets was much more efficient than merely placing them through the website.

Gary built his own software and then enhanced its features after trialling it through other Betfair users and reacting to their improvement ideas, something that still happens today.

He started making a small monthly charge so he could work on it full-time and then recruited Mark to help develop the products and Gruss Software was born.

We think it’s the best of its kind and so do a lot of our customers. But you can never stand still in this game and we’ll continue to improve the software if any more great ideas emerge.
