Thanks Pieter I will check again.
My technique is simple.
Publisher and subscriber are on the same box.
The publisher sends 10.000 messages.
The message sent is just the timestamp in the format (yyyy/mm/dd HH:mm:ss.fffff)
For each message the subscriber receives, the latency is calculated.
 Ln = In-On

IMO it's an artifact of the way you're measuring latency. Normally we
measure individual messages. You're measuring batches, it seems. The
actual latency per message should be constant depending on the message

In other words you've got an error in your measurement technique.
