[zeromq-dev] Inter-thread (zmq_inproc) Performance?

Hello.  I am curious if any benchmarking of zmq_inproc messaging has been performed, similar to the tests whose results are reported on:  http://www.zeromq.org/area:results

On a similar note, has any zmq_ipc testing been done?  How does it compare with SYS V or POSIX message queues?

If no testing has been done of which anybody is aware, can somebody provide performance estimates for zmq_inproc in particular?  Such as, what's single queue message throughput, assuming 1 producer and 1 consumer thread?  What might be the total throughput for a sample system with multiple queues and multiple producer and consumer threads?  I realize that sound speculation like this may be impossible, since the overhead of socket connections vs whatever is used for inter-thread communication may not be practical to estimate.

Thank you for any information that you can provide.

Mark Travis
