Sure. Just read the data as it comes in from the database and fill up a
chunk, then hand that on to a process. You can also distribute it in
smaller packets, just check what size gives the best throughput.
Still, I'd give each work parcel a number and then reorder the results
while collecting them, that allows you to vary the chunk size and the
process size independently, without having to wait for a process that
happens to take longer.
