Is there any way to distribute Alembic Export job on farm with multithreading enable ? default alembic plug-in in Maya is not using all thread here.

If memory serves well, long ago i tried to chunk-up the ABC export between multiple tasks running in parallel on the farm, then stitch them together, but the stitching itself is slow and kind of defeated the purpose.
If this data is for rendering, consider exporting to the native cache format of the renderer of choice. Or check if you can export to maya's GPU cache - if your renderer supports it. Using this cache you can export per frame. It is read only. You can consider exporting to maya geometry cache - it also supports per-frame export and if i remember right it is faster than alembic in the most cases, but locked to Maya only.
