Ok, great.

Not exactly.  Serializing is probably not the correct terminology here.

The problem is what I described in my response.  worker2 might send the message before worker1, in which case, it will have to wait for the master to receive worker1’s message and then process its message.  If it’s not causing performance degradation for you, don’t worry about it.
