By default, the build process is only executing in one process which is not efficient on modern multi-core hardware. Using this option the users can set how many parallel processes shall be used by the build process at the same time to compile modules. +
The option is set equal the number of processors/cores available in the system by default.

During the initial processing of projects several threads are created to utilize the parallelism of modern CPUs and improve performance. However, in some cases the number of created threads exceeds the OS or user thread/process limit that results in Out Of Memory exception. This option limits the number of parallel processes to the previous number.

By default, the Designer plug-in isn’t logging debug information to the Debug Console to help solving problems. However as errors are reported to the Error Log of Eclipse this information is rarely used. Most of the time these printouts hold no value for the users.
