If I understand this correctly, then he intends to send the same data to every thread. Thus it is not really the traditional Boss/Worker pattern as every worker will perform the exact same (not similar) task.

in thread choosing threads
I have had a similar requirement with realtime data and I did not manage to get this working as unfortunately there is no way to have a shared array of Queues.
Only way would be to store the read data in memory before starting with the threads, but this means a lot of memory consumption, which will be high already with 100 threads.
Update: I would be interested i there is a decent way to achieve a shared array of Queues.
