The best way (aka not polling) would be that the worker thread will stop itself if the queue is full, and will be restarted by a client thread by a signal.

take a look at thread signalling chapter in threads documentation

    That is a truly awful idea.

    Try it for yourself to find out why.

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?
