[zeromq-dev] Forwarders and slow network links

We have a situation where we have a cluster of services in one physical location, and another cluster of services in another physical location. The two physical locations are connected by a relatively slow network link. The services in each physical location communicate with each other using PUB/SUB and a shared zmq_forwarder.

We want to allow services in different physical locations to communicate with each other, but we do not want all network traffic to travel over the slow link.

If server-side filtering was functioning, I think that would perfectly fulfil our need. But while that is not operational, could anyone give some ideas as to how we might solve this problem?
