So the goal here is to explain the cost of things so you can make good decisions in your managed memory usage – it’s not to explain GC itself – it’s to explain how to use it. I assume most of you are more interested in using a garbage collector than implementing one yourself.
Yep, now I have a blog too.
I work on the CLR Performance Team so naturally I will be writing about performance.
There are many .NET Memory Performance Counters and this is meant to give you some guidelines in interpreting the counter data and how to correlate them. This assumes you have a basic understanding of GC.
First thing you may want to look at is “% Time in GC”.
