Hello Laurent,

maybe I am just unclear on the documentation and intended behaviour: is
ZMQ_MAX_SOCKETS intended to be the number of sockets for the context at
any one time or is it the absolute number of sockets that may be created
over the life-time of the context?

In the latter case I don't think REQ-REP with e.g. the Lazy Pirate
Pattern work for long-running programs: they would eventually run out of
sockets to create.

Best regards,
Olaf Mandel
