Adjusts the time that the garbage collector intrudes in your application.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
|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.
This is the only valid mode for the server garbage collector. It is equivalent to garbage collection on a workstation that is not concurrent.
|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. It balances responsiveness with throughput.|
This mode is equivalent to garbage collection on a workstation that is concurrent. It is not available on the server garbage collector.
|Enables garbage collection that is more conservative in reclaiming objects. Full Collections occur only if the system is under memory pressure while generation 0 and generation 1 collections might occur more frequently. This is the least intrusive mode.|
This mode is not available on the server garbage collector.
