Hi Jiri,

Benchmarks are always hard of course but there is the somewhat famous 
comparison of Erlang and C++ at Motorola:


Erlang was invented for telco applications and I believe the 
characteristics of telco applications are the same as for message 
brokers i.e. high concurrency, high availability etc. So I think the 
prejudice against Erlang's performance is not really justifiable.

Just my 0.02€ of course,
