This depends on the executor being used. There are both thread and 
process executors, so it will either affect the number of threads or 
processes started.

This is a zeromq-specific config opt that has been removed from recent 
versions of oslo.messaging (along with the zeromq driver).

More generally, the thread_pool options in oslo.messaging will affect 
how many threads are created to handle messages. I believe that would be 
per-process, not per-service (but someone correct me if I'm wrong).
