Advantages of Multithreaded Processes

Some of the advantages of multithreaded processes are given as follows −

  • All the threads of a process share its resources such as memory, data, files etc. A single application can have different threads within the same address space using resource sharing.
  • It is more economical to use threads as they share the process resources. Comparatively, it is more expensive and time consuming to create processes as they require more memory and resources.
  • Program responsiveness allows a program to run even if part of it is blocked using multithreading. This can also be done if the process is performing a lengthy operation.
  • In a multiprocessor architecture, each thread can run on a different processor in parallel using multithreading. This increases concurrency of the system. This is in direct contrast to a single processor system, where only one process or thread can run on a processor at a time.
