I am familiar with that report. The tests conducted are pretty similar
to the ones we did with Intel last year and earlier this year (see
Unfortunately the test setup - "producers reliably en-queues messages
onto the broker as fast as they can, consumers reliably de-queue
messages from the broker as fast as they can" - isn't addressing the key
problem I described, namely controlling and adapting the ingress rate in
order to maximise throughput.
