GCSettings.LatencyMode Property

Gets or sets the current latency mode for garbage collection.

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

public static GCLatencyMode LatencyMode { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Runtime.GCLatencyMode
One of the enumeration values that specifies the latency mode.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

GCLatencyMode is set to an invalid value.

You can reduce the level of intrusiveness of garbage collection in your application by setting the GCLatencyMode to LowLatency during critical operations. After such operations are completed, return to a higher latency mode so that more objects can be reclaimed to increase memory.

See Latency Modes for a discussion of how the runtime configuration settings for garbage collection affect the default value of the GCLatencyMode enumeration.
