Property Value


Setting this option to true can provide measurable throughput improvements by avoiding scheduling additional work items. However, it may come at the cost of reduced parallelism, as for example a producer may then be the one to execute work associated with a consumer, and if not done thoughtfully, this can lead to unexpected interactions. The default is false.
