VT MÄK (MÄK), a company of Vision Technologies Systems, Inc. (VT Systems), today announced the launch of MÄK High-Performance RTI 4.4, a major feature release that significantly improves performance, as well as adds several new features.
While MÄK has always focused on performance with the MÄK RTI, over the last year the company has doubled throughput performance. MÄK overhauled the message sending and receiving process to dramatically reduce the time to process incoming messages from the network while significantly lowering CPU processing time. MÄK has also separated the sending and receiving of messages into separate threads so that performance will not be affected when either one of these is heavily taxed.
The MÄK RTI makes it quick and easy to start a lightweight federation on your Local Area Network (LAN) without the configuration needed for more complex federations. Those lightweight federations can now include HLA Evolved FOM modules.
The MÄK RTI provides a fully standards-compliant HLA interface for both C++ and Java.
“High performance is our middle name,” said Felix Rodriguez, Development Manager Interoperability Products, VT MÄK. “This release offers the highest performance on the market and is twice as fast as our previous version and we can prove it. A white paper (mak.com/rti) details our performance testing; if you’re interested in testing it yourself, request the RTI benchmark test suite and we’ll give you the source code.”
