If this sending of 20k messages is a repeat affair, what if you had a
process per connection you could broadcast messages to that remained alive
for the duration of their TCP connections?

There would be overhead for process creation/teardown, but it would not
factor into the actual message transmission if the processes were

Just a guess... as Jim Morris said a better profile of where your program is
spending its time would be helpful in diagnosing this problem.
