Another option could be allow this config option to be more than just a
multiplier, so you could set a fixed number of threads for instance.

Possible values:

- FLOAT, behaves as it does today
- INTw , fixed number of workers
- INTw,FLOAT,INTw , this would be <minimum number of workers>,<multiplier for the cpus>,<maximum number of workers>, with this we'll have the chance to say "I want a minimum of 4 workers, but if there are 'lots' of core go ahead an used them without going over 12 workers". In the context of bundles and non homogeneous hardware would be helpful.

Bug description:
  On containerized setups with multiple cpus and hyperthreading on the
  metals the containers can see a large number of cores. With the
  default worker multiplier settings this eg. results in 112 workers
  plus a leader processes on one of our installs. With HA we have then
  3x113 processes serving in total, which is a bit of a waste (3x16G of
  RSS for one service, as an example)

  While this can be tuned down I'd suggest to cap the number of workers
  when the worker-multiplier setting is on default to make this more
  sensible out of the box
