GCSettings.IsServerGC Property

Gets a value indicating whether server garbage collection is enabled.

Namespace:  System.Runtime
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static bool IsServerGC { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if server garbage collection is enabled; otherwise, false.

If server garbage collection is not enabled, workstation garbage collection is in effect (with or without concurrent collection). Server garbage collection is available only on multiprocessor computers.

An unmanaged host can request server garbage collection, and the host request overrides configuration file settings. If the host does not specify the type of garbage collection, you can use a configuration file setting to specify server garbage collection. This setting is only valid in the application configuration file, not in the machine configuration file. The following example shows the contents of a sample application configuration file that enables server garbage collection.

<configuration>
  <runtime>
    <gcServer enabled="true" />
  </runtime>
</configuration>
