    Message Queue for high performance system

    We are planning to use around 100 message queues in high performance system for IPC. And the messages used are of fewer bytes in sizes.

    Would like to know if there any limitations or caveats in using message queues.

    Appreciate your inputs.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Posix message queues handle this quite well. They are queues, however. Not a message bus, which works better for many n-tiered applications. A good commercial one for that is Tibco's Rendezvous message bus, or Applied Materials' DMBX. I have used both for very complex client-server systems where you can have multiple servers handling a message queue - each message is dispatched to the next available server, automatically creating a load-balancing environment.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
