Adjusts the time that the garbage collector intrudes in your application.

|Disables garbage collection concurrency and reclaims objects in a batch call. This is the most intrusive mode.|
This mode is designed for maximum throughput at the expense of responsiveness.
|Enables garbage collection concurrency and reclaims objects while the application is running. This is the default mode for garbage collection on a workstation and is less intrusive than . It balances responsiveness with throughput.|
This mode is equivalent to garbage collection on a workstation that is concurrent.
|Enables garbage collection that is more conservative in reclaiming objects. Full collections occur only if the system is under memory pressure, whereas generation 0 and generation 1 collections might occur more frequently|
This mode is not available for the server garbage collector.
|Enables garbage collection that tries to minimize latency over an extended period. The collector tries to perform only generation 0, generation 1, and concurrent generation 2 collections. Full blocking collections may still occur if the system is under memory pressure.|
