Tools in bin directory

The bin directory at <trading engine install directory>\bin contains a number of tools, some of which can be useful in certain cases. The following table summarizes the tools and provides links for more information about some you may have occasion to use.

If you use Windows, the names of these tools have an extension of .cmd (for example, dbConfig.cmd). If you use UNIX, whether or not the tools have an extension depends on the specific brand of UNIX or Linux OS (for example, dbConfig or dbConfig.sh).

Depending on whether you use Windows or UNIX, some of these tools may not have been installed with the application. If a tool changes a value in the database, restart the server for the change to take effect.
