This function may induce IO or otherwise block the caller. Blocking in the scheduler thread will lead to degraded performance and should be avoided at all costs. If your code is running in the IO subsystem, the core will have already taken steps to ensure that blocking is acceptable. Otherwise, you should look at using the thread pool API to run a job in the IO pool.
