Thread pools address two different porblems: they usually provide improved performance when executing large numbers of asynchronous tasks, due to reduced per-task invocation overhead, and they provide a means of bounding and managing the resources, including threads, consumed when executing a collection of tasks.
To be useful across a wide range of contexts,
ThreadPool provides a number

urged to use the more convenient builder methods,

scenarios. Otherwise, use the following guide when manually configuring and
