Can you try it with a publisher/subscriber in the same process, both passing
the message as a shared_ptr and not? e.g. both:
MsgPtr m(new Msg);
Also, can you try running the pointcloud_serdes executable in the
This should at least help narrow down where the bottleneck may be occurring.
The first will do everything the same as interprocess except it won't hit
the TCP stack, while the second will bypass almost everything.
pointcloud_serdes should let us know if it's the
