1. Is anyone currently using EPGM/0MQ in a production environment that is willing to get in touch to discuss the performance.

2. I have been playing with the ZMQ_RATE option with EPGM. I have noticed that the higher the value the better the performance but when this value is set to 1,000,000 weird things happen with 0MQ on both sides. Typically a value of 100,000 seems to be okay and stable but the throughput is not as good.

This is my test 100,000 messages (67 bytes) published to the clients.

I see from the documentation the default value is 100 (kilobits per second). Is kilobits a typo?

What do other people use?

I am using version 2.1.6 and the default pgm library.
