Ad-Hoc Stock Scanning System

Dec 12, 2007 at 10:46 PM
First, thank to Eciloci, it's amazing & cool !

I would like to use flee to design an ad-hoc stock scanning system. There're two types of data, one is real time stock quotation, the other is off-line data ( like Earnings Per Share, Gross Margin... etc, but may update weekly or monthly or quarterly).
There're about 2000 stocks. If I load all the off line information for each stock on application start, update stock quotation in real time. How to speed up the stock scan for all the stocks ? I think maybe distributed computing or using asynchronous programming model or query the database asynchronously .... any idea ?

I guess you could run the scan on multiple threads if there are no dependencies between stocks.
