To set up max and min number of threads in ThreadPool class, ThreadPool.SetMinThreads and ThreadPool.SetMaxThreads methods could be useful.

1. Max and min number of threads example

using System;
using System.Threading;

namespace Test
{
	public class Program
	{
		static void Main(string[] args)
		{
			int tasksCount = 5;
			int iterationsCount = 5;

			WaitCallback callback = (object state) =>
			{
				int taskId = (int)state;

				for (int i = 0; i < iterationsCount; ++i)
				{
					int iterationId = i + 1;

					Console.WriteLine("Task " + taskId + "/" + tasksCount 
						+ ": Iteration " + iterationId + "/" + iterationsCount);
				}
			};

			ThreadPool.SetMinThreads(1, 1);
			ThreadPool.SetMaxThreads(2, 2);

			for (int i = 0; i < tasksCount; ++i)
			{
				int taskId = i + 1;

				ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(callback, taskId);
			}

			Thread.Sleep(1000);
		}
	}
}

Output:

Task 1/5: Iteration 1/5
Task 2/5: Iteration 1/5
Task 2/5: Iteration 2/5
Task 2/5: Iteration 3/5
Task 1/5: Iteration 2/5
Task 1/5: Iteration 3/5
Task 1/5: Iteration 4/5
Task 1/5: Iteration 5/5
Task 2/5: Iteration 4/5
Task 2/5: Iteration 5/5
Task 3/5: Iteration 1/5
Task 3/5: Iteration 2/5
Task 3/5: Iteration 3/5
Task 3/5: Iteration 4/5
Task 3/5: Iteration 5/5
Task 4/5: Iteration 1/5
Task 4/5: Iteration 2/5
Task 4/5: Iteration 3/5
Task 4/5: Iteration 4/5
Task 4/5: Iteration 5/5
Task 5/5: Iteration 1/5
Task 5/5: Iteration 2/5
Task 5/5: Iteration 3/5
Task 5/5: Iteration 4/5
Task 5/5: Iteration 5/5
 Note: Notice that, only 2 tasks are executed in the same time.
