      Transactions types:

      There are 4 types of transactions (Basic, Speed, Optimized and Scheduler). Below is explained every type:

      • BASIC (Blue): It is the standard transaction. A buyer is connected with a supplier without any addon in this connection.
      • SPEED (Green): It is the transaction sent by a buyer when this connection uses Speed (Cache - HCHE). This request don't arrive to the seller, it remains in TravelgateX.
      • SCHEDULER (Red): This kind of transaction only affects to static content (Hotel list, info hotel, etc). A transaction is tagged with this type when the info requested is stored in TravelgateX's Database (Offline).
      • OPTIMIZED (Gray): This type are the requests sent by TravelgateX to load internal databases. There are two sources:
        • Speed: When the info requested by a buyer with a Speed transaction isn't available in our DB, TravelgateX sends a request to the seller to obtain the info.
        • Scheduler: When the time to get all static info from a seller is too high, TravelgateX loads this info asynchronously to be possible offer this info to buyers in short time.
