There is a requirement in our application that messages have to be published/received in order,
so we have to use single channel.

I disabled file:sync() just to test if the bottleneck is caused by fsync.
The result showed it was not.  In your previous email you mentioned using ext3 with data=ordered you could get close to 500 msg/sec.  that means it is affected by disk.  However, i still think 20/sec is slow.
