In the current update, IBProvider v5.9 and LCPI OLE DB Services v1.12 started to use a common thread pool. This rearrangement of subsystems makes the operating system resource management more efficient and improves the overall performance of high-load applications.
Currently, the threads are being used for the following tasks:
- Connection pool
- Query pool
- Asynchronous loading of result sets
- Asynchronous notifications of the provider
- Working with files
- Garbage collection in updatable result sets
