There are many frameworks at hand, just search for it:
- ocamlp3l
- jocaml
- RPC with ocamlnet
- cothreads
- Ancient
- OCamlMPI

They maybe not look like exactly what you want, but they are close
enough to do what you want.

FYI, I have created a commercial application for sorting/processing big
files using OCaml. It runs using multi-processes as fast as other
commercial programs that do the same thing. In particular, it runs
faster than another well-known program written in C, using threads on
Windows and on Linux.
