> The only way to know is to test it This is true and also measure your system while testing to identify potential system bottlenecks. What else is your application doing besides making zeromq calls? Is there I/O involved? You say you are getting delays. How large are these? How busy are the systems when you're getting these delays. As a general rule, 1,000 or so TCP sockets is no big deal for a modern Unix/Linux kernel. I would also be surprised if 500 topics causes a much delay. Even a linear search per message would happen pretty quickly on a modern CPU. I am assuming that zeromq does better than linear since topics are exact prefix match there are plenty of alogrithmic solutions that are far faster than O(n). A number of vmstat samples will give a general idea of what's going on.
