Hi All!

I have no connection with rsyslog. I don't know anything about this

At first if you poll for an fd in more than one thread you can balance
the load. (When a thread handle a message another thread can read. Just
like in spamassassin :)

At second there may be more than one destionation or you can connect to
a database with more than one connection. So it can be parallelable too.

At third there _may_ be some processing between log reading and writing.

Below this I couldn't answer the questions so I delete it.
