[zeromq-dev] Speed of Subscriptions

I have a question about how fast an "average" workstation can subscribe to its publishers using the Pub/Sub method.

We have developed a client application (Publisher) that sends simple, pre-formatted message to receivers (Subscribers).  

When the receiver program launches and at specified intervals, it subscribes to its list of publishers. 

As our program may have a receiver  "listening to" 100's of senders, 
the receiver needs to subscribe to those hundreds of publishers first.

As those publisher stations may be coming on and off at through out the day, 
we were going to run this process every 15 minutes or so. 

But how long would that take?

I realize that "average" workstation may have different meaning 
but say a standard Windows workstation that can be found in a typical office environment
(Example: Intel Core i3-2130 CPU @ 3.40 GHz; 6 GB RAM; 64-bit Operating System)

trying to subscribe to 300 publishers. 

5 seconds, 10 seconds, 40 seconds, 1 minute?

Please let me know if you need any clarification. 

thank you,
