Do I have any control over the garbage collection algorithm?

  Shared By: Giovanna Silva    Date: Mar 24    Category: .Net Framework    Views: 1509

Answer:

A little. For example the System.GC class exposes a Collect method, which forces the garbage collector to collect all unreferenced objects immediately.

Also there is a gcConcurrent setting that can be specified via the application configuration file. This specifies whether or not the garbage collector performs some of its collection activities on a separate thread. The setting only applies on multi-processor machines, and defaults to true.
