in a DO application I detach many threads for which I need to measure

NSThread unfortunately doesn't supply any information about cpu/mem

Use DO to tell a thread to exit...

I would propose to add a GNUstep specific function that leaks internal
data structures about the thread on which system calls could be
performed to get the required information.

Any suggestions/corrections welcome.

Why not use the worker thread to collect problem specific information (stats, timers, ...) and let the controller thread (app) decide upon the optimal number of threads and so on?
