Look at projects "echo_server" and "qt_echo_server".

They use 2 thread pools among main (GUI) thread.
One thread pool (size is 1-2 threads) executes session management loop:
acceptance (with limited number of active sessions), start of accepted session, end of all sessions.
Second thread pool (by default is CPU number bounded) executes sessions' loops:
start of asynchronous read, start of asynchronous write, IO operation completion handling.
