What is thread pool? How can we create thread pool in C#1 min read

A thread pool is a collection of worker threads that efficiently execute asynchronous callbacks on behalf of the application.

Thread pool is basically collection of threads which can be used for preforming task in background. Using thread pool is a good practice over creating a new thread for you task.
