How GumGum Achieved on avg. 30% QPS Reduction

“So overall, GumGum can now safely implement QPS thresholds based on a partner-by- partner needs, which is something that we weren't able to do before. So, that's probably one of the biggest things that we've been able to take away from our partnership with Assertive Yield” Kara Petrocelli.

Challenges

GumGum’s challenges were the same of most of SSPs: low traffic quality, QPS limitations, DSP partners relationship, low profitability, bid request with low value, etc... Besides many SSPs have in place initiatives, like random sampling to predict supply volume, blocking segments or bidders, FIFO real-time counters, it is not really enough.

How to increase optimal QPS, traded value, wins rates, and infrastructure cost savings as a result of fewer requests to process?

"Here at GumGum, we really needed to find a way to reduce and manage the QPS that we were sending upstream to our partners that might be trading resources between ourselves and our overall partnerships. And we wanted to do this in a way, that wouldn't sacrifice scale for clients" Kara Petrocelli, Senior Director of Platform Operations, GumGum Inc.

Overall 30% QPS on Average Reduction

With AY Traffic Shaping, GumGum has successfully reduced its QPS by an average of 30%. This was accomplished without sacrificing campaign delivery, rather by freeing up server networking for increased demand and decreased cloud expenses by removing bids below operational value. Additionally, reducing incoming queries as well by implementing our solution directly to partners they work with.

QPS Thresholds for Individual DSP Partners

GumGum now uses AY Traffic Shaping to apply QPS thresholds based on the unique requirements of their DSP partners, allowing GumGum to deliver the most valuable inventory to each of their demand partners while ensuring that QPS thresholds were reached. This approach is game-changing because it enabled GumGum to maintain its relationships with its DSP partners while optimizing its supply pockets.
