Yeah, a (single IP, single port) sender won't scale across CPU cores with the default SO_REUSEPORT distribution.

However, 15K msg/sec should be handled without problems.
For example, we've measured 170K msg/sec (70 MB/sec) rates with a single listener using so_rcvbuf(1M) in our performance testing environment.
