Dispatchers

Dispatchers are responsible for scheduling the Mailboxes to dequeue messages and send them to the actor, and to control the throughput of the mailbox.

By default, all actors share a singleton ThreadPoolDispatcher with a throughput of 300 messages per mailbox run.

ThreadPoolDispatcher

The ThreadPoolDispatcher uses the built-in TaskFactory to schedule mailbox runs on the standard .NET thread pool.

CurrentSynchronizationContextDispatcher

The CurrentSynchronizationContextDispatcher works the same way as the ThreadPoolDispatcher, but uses the current SynchronizationContext as the TaskScheduler. This dispatcher is useful if you are running Proto.Actor in a desktop GUI application.
