I am using FreeBSD. And if I set NumCPUs to 1, then I have 2 threads
reported by top, if I set NumCPUs to 3, then I have 3 threads reported

No. And I was not thinking that paging/swaping is a problem. But it is
5 MB/s of data to be processed what could be a problem if it is has to
be copied a lot around in the memory (RAM).

It is not dedicated to Tor but at the moment I am testing it only with
Tor. So currently it does not have much other load, not CPU nor
memory. But later on (when I will tweak it correctly) it will have
also some other things running.
