That's correct, because the calls after the join_all need the results of all threads. The algorithm, that I use, has some parallel and serial parts, so I would run the parallel party with a thread group, wait until the group has finished and run the serial part.

I have read the documentation, but there is only the postcondition explained "Every thread in the group has terminated". The algorithm is a iteration algorithm, so I have create code like this:

creating thread group
for(i=0; i < iterations; ++i) {
        run threadgroup for parallel part, till all threads finished
        run serial part

So I would like to ask for, if the thread group is created, and I call the join_all within the loop, each "join_all" starts the full group again on each iteration or need I create a new threadgroup on each iteration (join_all can be called only once on a group)?
