Charge metrics definitions

per Feed

The term "Feed" refers to a stream of machine-readable information that is supplied to the program by an external entity. A Feed may include a redundant stream of incoming machine-readable information. A "Feed Handler" is a program component that handles a particular Feed. In determining the number of PoEs required for Feeds Handlers, if:

  • A particular Feed is bidirectional between an external entity and the program, then a single Feed Handler PoE is required.
  • A particular Feed is fed as separate streams of machine-readable information, then a separate Feed Handler PoE for each stream is required.
