I am using .net/c++ version of quickfix. How does logging effect Quickfix performance? If I disable logging to file, can it help to increase performance of quickfix?

Thanks,

I answered a stackoverflow question that was pretty much identical over here

Maybe it was you who cross posted. Long story short, logging has a real cost. Sadly there isn't alot you can do to get around it with a stock quickfix implementation.

Same answer as @chollida - any kind of logging has real computational cost. You can improve on the QuickFIX implementation without disabling the logging functionality by increasing the buffer size, or using message middleware to pass the logging task to another thread or core (which therefore amortizes the total computation time in the QuickFIX path).
