SpinWait.SpinOnce Method

Performs a single spin.

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

public void SpinOnce()

This is typically called in a loop, and may change in behavior based on the number of times a SpinOnce has been called thus far on this instance. Each spin results in the SpinWait method being called. A count is kept of the number of times SpinOnce() is called, and after a threshold count is reached, the Yield method is called.
