Nord Pool Spot is implementing a performance upgrade of the intraday trading platform Elbas Tuesday 3 July 2012 between 07:00 and 09:00 CEST. This upgrade requires some technical changes at the member side.
The upgrade will affect the way real time information is exchanged between the server at Nord Pool Spot and the member. There will be a shift from https to AMQP (Advanced Message Queuing Protocol) and technical changes are necessary at the member side.
Technical requirements for the Elbas 3.0 version
Those workstations which are used for Elbas trading need to be configured in order to be able to access TCP/IP ports 5671 & 5672 (standard port numbers for AMQP protocol) at the Elbas server side. The IP addresses of the Elbas server environment are the usual 126.96.36.199 (TEST) and 188.8.131.52 (PROD). Towards these IP addresses, it must be possible to access the TCP/IP ports 5671 & 5672.
In order to allow for sufficient testing of the upgraded version, the Elbas test environment at https://elbas-test.nordpoolspot.com/, will be open for testing during the period 14 June until 29 June. In addition there will be two separate consolidated testing sessions. The dates for these sessions are:
Session 1: Wednesday, 20 June 2012 between 13:30-15:30 CEST
Session 2: Wednesday, 27 June 2012 between 13:30-15:30 CEST
All members will also receive a separate e-mail with the above information.
