I know the maven-activemq-perf-plugin is mainly for testing the highest possible throughput.
However its a great plug-in for running all sorts of tests, not just for measuring the maximum performance.
What I was always looking for is a way to throttle consumer and producer when running test with this plug-in.
I propose to add two configuration properties: consumer.recvDelay and producer.sendDelay to the test suite.
Both variables would take a long value in milliseconds, whose default value is 0 (no throttling).
Proposed patch attached.
