Is there a Pool class for worker threads, similar to the multiprocessing module's Pool class?

I like for example the easy way to parallelize a map function

def long_running_func(p):

c_func_no_gil(p)

p = multiprocessing.Pool(4)

xs = p.map(long_running_func, range(100))

however, I would like to do it without the overhead of creating new processes.

I know about the GIL. However, in my use case, the function will be an IO-bound C function for which the python wrapper will release the GIL before the actual function call.

Do I have to write my own threading pool?

Yes, there is a threading pool similar to the multiprocessing Pool, however, it is hidden somewhat and not properly documented. You can import it by following way:-

from multiprocessing.pool import ThreadPool
