Chapter 12. Creating Threads and Processes

Process and thread creation are subject to system load, and integral to resource allocation and CPU time sharing. In some scenarios, a delay between an event occurring and it being handled is acceptable. In most situations, however, it creates unwanted and unnecessary latencies. To prevent this, the pool of processes or threads should always be created in advance, before they are called upon to service a request. For more information see Chapter 4, Threads and Processes.
