Subject [PATCH] ThreadPool rewrite with sanity checks
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2001 20:33:33 GMT
Hi all,

2. After a thread has already processed X requests or more (X
TcpWorkerThreads have been attached), it is terminated and a new thread is

I also changed the code and moved most synchronization from ThreadPool to
ObjectHASH (a fully synchronized hash table)

I tested the patched code with 60 threads from 3 different machines with
good results in terms of reliability and performance.

This patch involves changes to:
