Sorry to bring back a rather quiet thread from 3 days ago. How fast do we need to queueing component to be? My observation from Amazon EC2 us-east-1 is about 2 VMs provisioned per second on average. Let's say there are 100 messages exchanged for the workload per second per VM (which I believe is over estimated), and the peak time workload is 100x higher. Then we need a queue that can do 20,000 messages per second at the peak rate. Either Rabbit or 0MQ should handle this very easily. So I'm assuming performance is not a concern.
Now if we go brokerless completely for all messages, that's an obvious gain as we get rid of one type source of failure. Can that be achieved? My impression after quickly skimming through the 0MQ document is that those direct connection can be brokerless but things more like broadcast can't be. I might very much be wrong at this, and I would appreciate a lot if someone could help to explain.
