This is very odd, and not what I would expect at all.
Topic exchanges are slower than direct exchanges - the routing logic is
after all more complicated - but it certainly shouldn't be a factor of 10.
Also, if you are pushing messages as fast as you can at Rabbit 2.8.0+,
it should go into flow control regardless of where the actual bottleneck is.
Can you post the code you were running?
