Are these sizes representative of the actual load you are trying to test?

The JMS API only seems to allow TextMessage types to be populated from
a String, so the entire file will have to be read into memory.

You need a Constant Throughput Timer to set the appropriate rate.

The ramp-up does not control test duration directly, that mainly
depends on the number of samples sent (loops) and the sample rate.

I suggest you try experimenting with a dummy test using Java Samplers
to see how the Timers work.

See above.
