Can you talk about how workers traverse a playbook and sub-playbooks?

Reply by @RahulVijaydev
Workers are assigned to each automated task from a worker pool as they execute. The worker pool consists of (number of CPU cores X 16) workers for ex. 64 workers in a 4 core machine. When an automated task has to execute, it picks a worker from the pool, keeps it for the entire duration of the operation, and releases it back to the pool upon execution. When all the workers have been consumed, and the worker pool is exhausted, tasks wait until a worker is released. NOTE: Be careful while implementing parallel branches in a playbook, as too many branches can lead to workers getting tied up.
