Worker Process .Net Garbage Collector Concurrency Mode

This policy controls what concurrency mode the Microsoft .Net garbage collector uses.

Concurrent garbage collection enables threads to run concurrently with a dedicated thread that performs the garbage collection for most of the duration of the collection. This option affects only garbage collections in generation 2; generations 0 and 1 are always non-concurrent because they finish very fast.

This is an advanced tuning option that should not normally be modified.

The default value is to use non-concurrent garbage collection.

Supported on: At least Windows Server 2003 operating systems or Windows XP Professional

Specify what concurrency mode the Microsoft .Net Framework garbage collector should operate in for worker processes created by the System Center Management Service.
