Are you looking for throttling or can your requirement simply be met by
putting a limit on the number of threads active at one time?

I recently looked at the async feature of the Throttler component and I
was concerned that it was not clear in the documentation whether
messages processed asynchronously after a delay would still be processed
within the transaction.  One consequence if they are not processed
within a transaction is that if the JVM stops abruptly while some
messages are delayed then the messages waiting in RAM for asynchronous
processing could be lost.

One way to deal with this is to put the messages back into the message
broker with a scheduled delivery header.  The message broker is then
responsible for persistence.
