Thread Parallel Library Dataflow is a new addition to the .NET parallel stack. It is based on agents and message passing blocks. Agent is based on the Actor Model and is one of the building blocks of a Concurrent Dataflow Network. The idea behind the TPL Dataflow library is that you build a network from agents and message blocks. Messages are sent concurrently from, agent and message-blocks, to other agents, utilizing the network you’ve built to solve a specific problem.
