Forcing Garbage Collection automatically

Postby edrishn » Wed Oct 01, 2014 4:43 am

Hi and thanks for YourKit,

I'm using Profiler API (CaptureSnapshot) in some automated UI tests for finding memory leaks. It seems garbage collection was not forced in API. When I tested same scenario through Profiler UI and 'Force Garbage Collection' everything is OK.

I had no luck in calling GC.Collect and GC.WaitForPendingFinalizers and ...

Thanks in advance

Hi edrishn

We've added a new method Controller.ForceGC() for this purpose in the latest build 14518:

It does the same as the profiler UI action.

Best regards,
Anton
