Any benefit from multiple jobservers on a physical server


Are there any benefits to be gained from having multiple jobserver defined on a single physical server using 4.2 sp8.
I understand that in the distant past this was a requirement in order to service multiple repositories, but this is no longer a limitation!

I've arrived at a site which has 10+ jobservers on a single physical server. This is just consuming resource for what I believe is no benefit. The administrators have idea why it has been done just replicated what was there before ...

Thanks in advance for any insights

    For production env, seems there is no benefit with multiple server in a single machine.
    For dev env, developer can use their only job server to test and check if there is any error reported.

    There is benefit with server group (Job servers from multiple machines)
