First set a baseline with iperf.

Second try the performance tools in ZeroMQ.

Third try the performance tools in OpenPGM.

Due to the high watermark you have set in ZeroMQ it might be an issue
previously raised:  application level throttling is required, although it
need only be coarse grained.  The problem with high speed pushing into
ZeroMQ means you saturate the memory bus queuing up everything and slow the
entire system down causing performance to be significantly worse.

Reliable multicast is not easy™
