I don't know if this will help you or not:

I tried to use XMLRPC betweem a small embedded ARM system runing linux
and a Windows PC.  The performance of a client on the PC and a server on
the embedded system was acceptable (~10 requests per second), but the
server on the PC called by a client running on the embedded system was unacceptable:
1 request took around 5 seconds to complete.

I have since switched to jsonrpc instead of xmlrpc which has a
much better performance: around 70 requests per second, in both
