Right. I'm not at that stage yet, but I can totally see that happening.
Ok. Time to hit up the TCP stack people to weigh in on the recent lkml
posts about this:
With SO_REUSEPORT, we should create one listen FD per thread, and let
the OS balance how that gets distributed. Rather than one listen
socket that is shared between all processes/threads. I'll try that
locally and see if that works right. Would you mind trying it locally
and see if it improves the distribution of work?
