Description

This parameter specifies the maximum number of threads that will be created to handle the jobs. One thread is created per job up to the limit of this value, so this also indicates the maximum number of concurrent (active) jobs. Once a job completes, the released thread is then used for the next inactive job. The value cannot exceed the total number of jobs in the configuration file.
