PAR Not Changing Process Counts

I have PAR_COUNT set to 100 (and uncommented, and “export”ed) in ~rancid/etc/rancid.conf. However, I notice that there’s never more than 5 devices being archived at any given time. My system load is low, and this server is dedicated exclusively to rancid, so it’s unclear to me why I wouldn’t be able to do more at once, or how to troubleshoot?

I’m on rancid 3.4.1.
