    Default Re: Performance of Threads

    Impossible to answer for many reasons. Some number of threads will have no noticeable effect until eventually some number of ACTIVE threads will. The number of threads from no impact to some impact will vary widely depending on many factors.

    On the other hand, an application run entirely on one heavily-loaded thread may impact the application's performance, and the mitigation may be to add threads that do some of the work in the background.
