Using Synchronization, you can synchronize access to resources in multithreaded applications.
A mutex can be used to synchronize threads across processes Use it to prevent the simultaneous execution of a block of code by more than one thread at a time.
C# lock statement is used to ensure that a block of code runs without interruption by other threads. A Mutual-exclusion lock is obtained for a given object for the duration of the code block.
Thread pool in C# is a collection of threads. It is used to perform tasks in the background. When a thread completes a task, it is sent to the queue wherein all the waiting threads are present. This is done so that it can be reused.
Let us see how to create a thread pool.
Firstly, use the following namespace −
Now, call the threadpool class, using the threadpool object. Call the method QueueUserWorkItem.
The Mutex class in C# is a synchronization primitive that can also be used for interprocess synchronization.
Let us see how to create a new Mutex −
private static Mutex m = new Mutex();
