I suspect most of these problems are now due to misconfiguration in SC, including people who are trying to still use some old R+ API Plug-In version. However, I do not execute or manage trades at all within SC. I only use it for charting, so my experience is largely tied to the live streaming data and the backfill. Both are working just fine for me right now. Make sure you have DC Data disabled and set the maximum backfill to something reasonable. If you're just populating intraday numbers bars (footprints) you could reasonably clamp your backfill to just the prior session or overnight inventory. I know there used to be a note about this on the forums for Rithmic suggesting 5 days. For footprints you can clamp that further. For TPO charts I doubt most people will need more than two weeks to initially seed their chart.
I had meant to contact SC about this so they could know, but I've been too busy lately with a grandparent nearly dying in January and spending a month in the ICU. All due to their surgeries being cancelled in 2020 thanks to covid restrictions. I'm livid even typing this part up because they had an early Wuhan strain and only had mild bronchitis, only to end up almost dying to protect overweight diabetics who are at high risk with any respiratory illness. That comorbidity isn't unique to covid. But, that's neither here nor there.
I'll reiterate what I said before; After some strongly worded language I got Rithmic to fix the DTC connection's historical backfill, so now Denali is unnecessary. When I was testing the fix, if I recall correctly, it took about 20 minutes to do 20 days of 1-Tick backfill on a chart that had three studies; TPO, VbP, and Current Price. Even for TPO charts you shouldn't be trying to backfill a ridiculous amount of 1-Tick data, so I considered this fine. However, Rithmic still wants to implement the compression that DTC supports to speed that up.
