How Does QPS Adapter Filter Work?

On your SmartHub platform, you have an adapter that analyses what kind of traffic your connected DSPs bid on (according to many parameters). By doing this it learns what kinds of traffic are the most preferred by each DSP. As soon as the QPS adapter analyzes what kind of traffic generates the most bid responses it starts to send more of such traffic towards DSPs that need it.

What kind of parameters are taken into account? The work of the QPS Adapter is sophisticated as it analyzes the inventory based on a variety of traffic parameters, like:

  • country
  • size
  • device type 
  • secure/non-secure
  • connection type
  • OS

This is not the complete list of all the keys that undergo the analysis, it is just a small part of what is taken into consideration when the throttling system sends out more QPS to specific endpoints. The majority of traffic that goes through the adapter this way will be relevant to the prioritized parameters. The remaining (smaller) volume is not getting sorted by adapter but it is also passed to DSP as it helps to learn new parameters e.g in case DSP’s requirements regarding traffic change. This small volume is just enough for DSP to start bidding to traffic to which it didn’t bid before.

Disabling the adapter. By unticking this checkbox “QPS Adapter” you can disable the in-built throttling system, meaning the traffic will be sent to DSP endpoints without the analysis of the adapter.
