Multiple io_services are completely independent. The parameter is a
hint for permissible concurrency for a single io_service being run by
multiple threads. What behaviour this actually affects depends on the
platform -- for example, on Windows this is passed to the OS when
creating the underlying IOCP, which tells it how to throttle thread wakeups.
