Ok. Let me start with iPerf.. 

Will update this thread with results as I think it will be really useful to others as well.

Unfortunately no luck. Just tried varying the multicast rates on both sides anywhere between 1000 to 10000 to even 1000000 but no change. Its a little counterintuitive that lowering rates can help especially if HWM is sufficiently high. I am using 32 bit SuSe on one side and 64 bit SuSe on the other side.

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™
