I would like to know if there is any machanism that deals with or prevents threads from hung up in Horizon.

Horizon is run inside one of more processes within a web server container (like mod_wsgi in Apache). It doesn't really have much state of its own, besides session management, but if you are asking whether Horizon, the web application, can handle lots of concurrent users without blocking other users, the answer is yes. But it's not strictly multi-threaded, per-se. It's multi-process -- via the containing servlet.

Thanks for answering. Actually what I need to know is if Horizon can deal with hung-up threads/processes: 1) by detecting when a process hungs-up 2) and terminating it when necessary;
