Hi, When using the LocalDaskExecutor and specifying the number of workers, will each worker use one thread or as many as it can? Will prefect map one task to one worker then?

Hi @Ralph Willgoss I believe by default each worker will use a single thread. Prefect mapping will map over one task to one worker at a time (e.g. if you have 4 workers using 4 threads then 4 tasks will run in parallel)

ah yes - ok good thanks @josh, this is what i thought. i'n running on a 96core box but with only 24 workers configured, so something else is spawning more threads. this helps me narrow it.
