thread level parallelism

Short for thread-level parallelism, TLP is a software capability that allows high-end programs, such as a database or web application, to work with multiple threads at the same time. Programs that support this ability can do a lot more, even under high workloads.

Thread-level parallelism used to only be utilized on commercial servers. However, as applications and processes became more demanding, this technology has trickled down to the masses in the form of multi-core processors found in today's desktop computers.
