We have had various reports of performance increases when moving from
11RB-x to 12RB-y, so it would be definitely worth your while to
upgrade to the latest version of Erlang (I am using 12RB-4).

As much as anything, the OTP team has put in lots of fixes and
performance increases in the last year, so it is good idea to keep up
to date with this.

If you want to test the performance, you can look at the performance
tests in the Java client (MulticastMain, ProducerMain, ConsumerMain).

I shouldn't think so, but it would be very interesting to know if this
were really the case.

Without having any experience of this, I can't comment.
