Module for distributing jobs to a pool of worker threads.

Module for distributing jobs to a pool of worker threads. Performing tasks in many threads made fun! This module facilitates distributing simple operations into jobs that are sent to worker threads, maintained by a pool object. It consists of these components:

  • Jobs, which are single units of work that need to be performed.
  • Workers, who grab jobs from a queue and perform them.
  • Worker pool, which keeps track of workers and the job queue.
