My test application listens on

gandalf at gandalf-desktop:~/Python/Lib/orb/examples/01_lowlevel$ ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.027 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.018 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.021 ms

If we only see the response time, the worst case would be 1000.0/ ( 
2*0.027 ) = 18518 message pairs / sec...

(My friend used too)
