System.Runtime Namespace

The System.Runtime namespace contains advanced types that support diverse namespaces such as the System, Runtime, and the Security namespaces.

The types found in this namespace are intended for use in advanced development.

  Class Description
Public class AssemblyTargetedPatchBandAttribute Infrastructure. Specifies patch band information for targeted patching of the .NET Framework.
Public class Supported by Portable Class Library GCSettings Specifies the garbage collection settings for the current process.
Public class MemoryFailPoint Checks for sufficient memory resources before executing an operation. This class cannot be inherited.
Public class ProfileOptimization Improves the startup performance of application domains in applications that require the just-in-time (JIT) compiler by performing background compilation of methods that are likely to be executed, based on profiles created during previous compilations.
Public class TargetedPatchingOptOutAttribute Infrastructure. Indicates that the .NET Framework class library method to which this attribute is applied is unlikely to be affected by servicing releases, and therefore is eligible to be inlined across Native Image Generator (NGen) images.

  Enumeration Description
Public enumeration GCLargeObjectHeapCompactionMode [Supported in the .NET Framework 4.5.1 and later versions] Indicates whether the next blocking garbage collection compacts the large object heap (LOH).
Public enumeration Supported by Portable Class Library GCLatencyMode Adjusts the time that the garbage collector intrudes in your application.
