System.Runtime Namespace

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

Classes

AssemblyTargetedPatchBandAttribute

Specifies patch band information for targeted patching of the .NET Framework.

GCSettings

Specifies the garbage collection settings for the current process.

MemoryFailPoint

Checks for sufficient memory resources before executing an operation. This class cannot be inherited.

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.

TargetedPatchingOptOutAttribute

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.

Enums

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).

GCLatencyMode

Adjusts the time that the garbage collector intrudes in your application.

Remarks

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