[Snort-users] internal load balancing for multi-thread processing (Snort3)

Looking into Snort3 with multiple CPUs I found a thread from 2015 which says:

  "Snort++ currently requires external load balancing if you want to use multiple
  packet threads with live traffic. In that case you can specify 
  -i "eth0 eth1 eth2" or whatever. Likewise with pcaps. We are planning to add support 
  for internal load balancing in a future version."


Is it still the case that some form of external load balancing is required for doing  multi-threaded Snort?
