Overview

Internal Docs for A simple thread pool management object.

Each Puma “worker” has a thread pool to process requests.

First a connection to a client is made in `Puma::Server`. It is wrapped in a `Puma::Client` instance and then passed to the `Puma::Reactor` to ensure the whole request is buffered into memory. Once the request is ready, it is passed into a thread pool via the `Puma::ThreadPool#<<` operator where it is stored in a `@todo` array.

Each thread in the pool has an internal loop where it pulls a request from the `@todo` array and proceses it.

#wait_until_not_fullObject

This method is used by `Puma::Server` to let the server know when the thread pool can pull more requests from the socket and pass to the reactor.

The general idea is that the thread pool can only work on a fixed number of requests at the same time. If it is already processing that number of requests then it is at capacity. If another Puma process has spare capacity, then the request can be left on the socket so the other worker can pick it up and process it.

For example: if there are 5 threads, but only 4 working on requests, this method will not wait and the `Puma::Server` can pull a request right away.

If there are 5 threads and all 5 of them are busy, then it will pause here, and wait until the `not_full` condition variable is signaled, usually this indicates that a request has been processed.

It's important to note that even though the server might accept another request, it might not be added to the `@todo` array right away. For example if a slow client has only sent a header, but not a body then the `@todo` array would stay the same size as the reactor works to try to buffer the request. In that scenario the next call to this method would not block and another request would be added into the reactor by the server. This would continue until a fully bufferend request makes it through the reactor and can then be processed by the thread pool.
