Hello, are there any known artifical limitations of WinNT Workstation as opposed to e.g. WinNT Server regarding the scheduling scheme of the threads?
For e.g. the medusa thread receives a http request and "passes" it to the pool of ZORB threads. We have a small Zope product which remains sleeping in a loop until a file contains a matching line. We trigger the execution of this product by requesting the proper URL and also are able to monitor its doings. With WinNT Server and W2K Server Zope is still able to respond towards further http requests, even though the one ZORB worker thread is actually waiting in the loop. With WinNT Workstation we receive no errors and the medusa thread still receives requests which are queued. But there is no real progress along the ZORB threads because only one worker seems to receive timeslots and that is the one waiting and sleeping within the loop. The rest of the thread pool is "active" but seems to receive no time slots. So effectivly Zope comes to a quite a halt but will of course continue nicely, if the waiting ZORB thread is allowed to exit the loop. The queued requests are then handled as if nothing has happend. Is this a known behaviour of WinNT Workstation as opposed to e.g. WinNT Server or W2K Server?
