http listener windows implementation question

Jul 4, 2014 at 4:20 PM

I am just curious, why did you choose to use the Windows 7 (and later) threadpool APIs in this implementation instead of using the ConcRT features? Did you determine that there is a performance improvement of ThreadPool APIs over ConcRT?

We support different schedulers, ConcRT and Windows thread pool are both supported on Windows. Casablanca on Visual Studio 2013 runs PPL tasks on ConcRT, but this might change later.

Obviously, non-Windows platforms use specialized OS-specific schedulers.
