I'd rather do a 0MQ module TBH. From what i've seen at customer sites, high-speed distributed pub/sub models with no central brokers/routers/bridges, better fit requirements for message passing.

It may be better to attempt to separate the modules that do marshalling/unmarshalling from the ones that handle transport.

Similar functionality to splunk, though i'm not sure splunk can output graphs, and it's not free of course.

It would also be considerably faster. Don't suppose you want to contribute that config? :)
