Description

The FEAdminConsole (CCAdminConsoletool allows to manage sessions and can be started from the command line as well as from cron.

FEAdminConsole uses the FixEdge XML Socket monitor port number. Default: 8902

The tool is written on Java, so requires Java to be in the PATH.

Since FIXEdge version 5.11.0 JRE is within the installation package.

FEAdminConsole can run both on Windows and Linux.

The tool uses the same FIX Administrative session protocol as FIXICC under the hood.

How to run

This application is included in the FIXEdge package, it is located in \FIXEdge\bin\ folder.

Run FEAdminConsole.exefile for Windows.
Run ./FEAdminConsole file for Linux.

It uses the same credentials as FIXICC with UI. The credentials are configured as parameters for Monitoring sessions in engine.properties

Troubleshooting

FIXEdge XML Socket monitor port number

FEAdminConsole uses the FixEdge XML Socket monitor port number. 

Verify FIXEdge.properties file where the property is set.

ControlCentre.XMLSockMonitor.Port = 8902


./FEAdminConsole: error while loading shared libraries: libV12_rh6.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Set env variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH to force the system to search libraries in the current directory.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH is a variable pointing to dependencies (libraries).

cd FIXEdge/bin
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

This issue is generated because it was not able to establish a connection with FIXEdge, it can be solved by performing the below verifications.

  • Verify FIXEdge is running.
  • Verify the port FixEdge XML Socket is the same as the one used in the parameter port e.g. (8902)

Usage examples

Get FIXEdge statistics with FEAdminConsole

Path: \FIXEdge\bin\

FEAdminConsole.exe -stat -host localhost -port 8902

FEAdminConsole -stat Output Sample of Success
