The network is 10gbit so it seems unlikely. The 5 brokers were running
without much load or probs. The bottle neck is that no matter how many
threads I use for sending, the sync block in the send method will never go
faster and its always limited to a single thread.

I also use snappy outside and no compression in the producer. A single
producer gives me max 6-10k tps, with 10 producers I can get max 60k tps.
This is on my servers and with my payload.

My end conclusion was that its impossible to scale a single producer
instance, and more threads make no difference on the sending side.
