I'm using forks in the include file and it works just fine for me. As to the
number of forks, you should determine that for your own installation. The
speed of the host machine, the speed of the communication links and
equipment can affect the speed of the operation. The main thing is use
sufficient forks so that all sessions end before the time that the session
runs again.
I have a similar setup to yours and am using 4 forks. It slows other
programs during the time all forks are up so could be better to use less.
