ThreadPool.GetAvailableThreads Method

Retrieves the difference between the maximum number of thread pool threads returned by the GetMaxThreads method, and the number currently active.

Namespace:  System.Threading
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

static member GetAvailableThreads : 
        workerThreads:int byref * 
        completionPortThreads:int byref -> unit 

Parameters

workerThreads
Type: System.Int32%
The number of available worker threads.
completionPortThreads
Type: System.Int32%
The number of available asynchronous I/O threads.

When GetAvailableThreads returns, the variable specified by workerThreads contains the number of additional worker threads that can be started, and the variable specified by completionPortThreads contains the number of additional asynchronous I/O threads that can be started.

If there are no available threads, additional thread pool requests remain queued until thread pool threads become available.
