GC.WaitForFullGCComplete Method (Int32)
Returns, in a specified time-out period, the status of a registered notification for determining whether a full, blocking garbage collection by common language the runtime has completed.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public static GCNotificationStatus WaitForFullGCComplete( int millisecondsTimeout )
- Type: System.Int32
The length of time to wait before a notification status can be obtained. Specify -1 to wait indefinitely.
Return ValueType: System.GCNotificationStatus
The status of the registered garbage collection notification.
Use the GCNotificationStatus enumeration returned by this method to determine the status of the current garbage collection notification that was registered by using the RegisterForFullGCNotification method. You can also use the WaitForFullGCApproach method to determine whether a full garbage collection is imminent.
Note that this method returns immediately whenever a garbage collection notification status is obtained, regardless of the value specified by millisecondsTimeout. If a garbage collection notification status is not obtained before millisecondsTimeout times out, this method returns NotApplicable.
You can call the CancelFullGCNotification method when you cannot wait for the time-out period to elapse.
This method call should be preceded with a call to the WaitForFullGCApproach method to make sure that you have had a full garbage collection. Calling this method alone can produce indeterminate results.
