[zeromq-dev] contributing to 0MQ

I am not a member of iMatix nor a developer on the 0MQ team, so am being a bit rude by responding to your note - Martin S., please forgive me!

One of the most difficult areas with software the nature of 0MQ is exactly the one you are thinking of: "Latency monitoring and adjustment". Given reasonable SLAs between systems/nodes/threads/whatever, it would be great to 1) examine the QoS against the SLAs and 2) be in a position to monitor the state of the system; even better, change parameters on the fly to alleviate things such as congestion, hung clients, or whatever.

My two Euro cents...

The first step of this research should be an academic contribution
(papers) together with prototypes and a second step should be ideally
the cleaning/factorization and contribution to the 0MQ code base.
Therefore, I would like to start with a solid academic contribution.
