data-flow: network -> stage A -> stage B -> network

If 10.000 clients are connected to the service and 1% of the clients send a
large message then stage A is triggered to read/process 100 requests at the
same time - possibly all threads of the pool are used by stage A and tasks
of stage B are queued in the pool until a worker-thread are finished with
items of A.


Maybe, I would like to see some benchmarks.
