threadCount is undoable, queryable, and NOT editable.This command sets the number of threads to be used by Maya in regions of code that are multithreaded. By default the number of threads is equal to the number of logical CPUs, not the number of physical CPUs. Logical CPUs are different from physical CPUs in the following ways: A physical CPU with hyperthreading counts as two logical CPUs
In query mode, return type is based on queried flag.
