AMQP and Openwire are protocols. Throughput and latency can only be 
measured against implementations. So while in theory, aspects of a 
protocol can impact performance in different ways, that is quite hard to 

Others on this list can hopefully give more in terms of actual numbers, 
I haven't done any benchmarking myself.

However I believe neither the AMQP support in ActiveMQ nor the Qpid 
proton engine it depends on have been optimised much at this point, so I 
would expect switching from Openwire to AMQP in ActiveMQ to see some 
degradation on performance. That is not inherent to the protocols 
however and just reflects the relative maturity of the implementations 
of each.
