ok, I'd still prefer if you took out that setting.

Do the consumers use acknowledgements?

So the 100kHz is the aggregate publishing and consuming rate, i.e. 10 x 
5kHz publishing and 10 x 5kHz consuming?

What results do you get in the single-node and multi-node scenarios when 
running the tests with just a single queue and single producer and 
single consumer?
