[zeromq-dev] Delivery time

I have several systems, with different hardware, o.s., network, etc... 
which runs some applications based upon zmq.

They all have a router/dealer configuration.
I send very small packets (< 50 byte) every few seconds.
In some systems there is a "real" network: just two machines directly 
connected with an eth cable.

What is the expected delivery time of the messages?

I ask this because often I experience very long delays in the reception. 
I'm talking about several hundred of ms, sometime over 500 ms.

I'm pretty sure there is something wrong in my code.
I use both Qt wrapper and plain C++ classes.

What tests do you recommend to find out the cause of the issue?
