the io-thread-count parameter is a configuration of the maximum number
of threads (not the fixed number of threads). The actual number of
threads scale up with the number of active (sys)calls in transit
(today logarithmically, but we're making it more effective, closer to
linear) with io-thread-count acting as a cap.
