Introduction to threading

Suggest edit Updated on September 3, 2021

There are several types of threading you use in Pega Robot Studio:

  • User interface threads
  • Robot Studio automations and user interface threads
  • Adapter threads
  • Automation threads

Threads are a very powerful tool for developers but they also must be used with great care. Threads are a resource within the operating system and only a limited number are available at a time. Using too many threads simultaneously can cause a computer’s CPU to thrash.

For more information, see Threading best practices.
