WBT apps are limited to 30% processor usage and 500 megabytes of ram. Exceeding these limits will cause the app to be terminated.

In addition to what Steve wrote, the processor itself used on the WBT changes over time based on what's available, generally updating to newer/faster CPUs when it changes.  

As of today's date, the current processor being shipped on WBT systems is a dual-core processor with hyper-threading.  It has 8 GBytes DDR3-1333, Intel® Core™ i7  2.4 GHz Turbo, 4MB L3 cache, with HD3000 graphics.  Please feel free to contact us here or using the link above for the currently shipping CPU configuration.  

Note that the numbers provided by Steve are per app and enforced by the System Monitor. Should more capability be required for your solution, please contact us and we can discuss your specific needs.

​Is this 30% limit per core or in total? Is it reasonable to design a multithreaded architecture for the app?

​30% in total.

It's not absolutely required to have a multithreaded architecture for your app, but the API is designed around multithreaded paradigms and for example uses callbacks in a number of places. There are many things you can do single threaded but to take full advantage of the API a multithreaded approach is generally best.
