Nothing limits the number of concurrent threads. Personnally i have checked i can run Grub Next Generation Python Client with 600 threads without any problem. niobe% uname -a FreeBSD niobe.lpthe.jussieu.fr 7.0-STABLE FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE #0: Tue Jul 22 10:31:01 CEST 2008 niobe% python Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Jul 5 2008, 13:44:44) Recall that python threads are just native threads, but these threads are protected from trashing the python state by a single lock, the GIL, which is released when you do IO. This allows to effectively thread IO, but not python computation. The FreeBSD thread library has no particular limitations, you can run hundreds or thousands of threads without much problem, for example under Java. -- Michel TALON _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
